No one ever really understands why Sufjan Stevens does what he does, including putting the Prince song Alphabet Street on his Christmas album.
Via the music blog Consequence Of Sound, Songs For Christmas: Silver & Gold is a boxed set includes actual Christmas songs — Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Do You Hear What I Hear?, Good King Wenceslas — but I guess it needed a little Prince, too. The boxed set, which comes with temporary tattoos and a holiday ornament among other goodies, is out on November 13.
