Sufjan Stevens and his label Asthmatic Kitty, have announced the Great Sufjan Song Xmas Xchange, wherein you write and record a Christmas song, and if your song is the bestest Christmas song in the world, Sufjan will send you a song in return. Not just any song, either – a brand new song that none of us have ever heard. You'd get the legal rights to it, too. So if you wanted to be an Ebenezer and keep it locked away forever, you could. If you wanted to embody the spirit of Christmas giving and send it to us at MFR to post up, thereby sprinkling the world with a little more holiday joy, you could do that, too.
You have until December 1st to submit your track to Asthmatic Kitty. All the "yadda yadda, we get your first born, yadda yadda" stuff and instructions can be read here. And make sure you read all of that. This label inflicted Shapes and Sizes upon the world; they might try and pull something.
If you do record a song, send it over to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll post it up.
