It’s not often that Sufjan Stevens releases a music video. However, the Age Of Adz singer has now released the second music video from his latest album. The first, “Too Much” was an exclusive premiere through the Guardian last November, and last week, on July 7th, Sufjan debuted the video for “Get Real, Get Right.” With an album just begging for visual representation, and one that has been receiving a great amount of praise and acclaim for its accompanying tour, the video is just as frantic and engaging for fans.
‘Get Real, Get Right’ sends you on a paper-made stop-motion journey of Age of Adz. Animated and directed by Sufjan Stevens himself, the video almost gives us a glimpse into the way information and inspiration for the album ran through Sufjan’s head, something that alluded most when it was released last October, but has become more clear ever since the live tour began.
The video animation uses original artwork by Royal Robertson, whose work is featured in MAKE, a documentary which inspired Sufjan Stevens’ Age of Adz.
