Indie-folk demi-god Sufjan Stevens releases his new album 'Carrie and Lowell' on March 27th.

To celebrate, a number of listening parties will be held around the world ahead of its release. Tower Records and his label Asthmatic Kitty Records will co-host the Dublin party at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Trinity College on March 10th. Stevens played his first Irish gig at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in 2004.

A limited number of wristbands are available to fans who pre-order the album from Tower Records on Dawson Street, which will allow them and a friend access to the listening party at 6.30pm. The album will be played through wireless headphones.

You can hear his brand new song - and the first cut from the album - 'No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross' below:
