Sufjan Stevens 2005

‘Concerning The UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois’ is the opening track from Sufjan Stevens’ 2005 album Illinois. “When the revenant came down/We couldn’t imagine what it was/In the spirit of three stars/The alien thing that took its form/Then to Lebanon, oh, God!/The flashing at night, the sirens grow and grow”. A conceptual song for a conceptual album. Out there. Really out there.
