Sufjan Stevens wastes valuable time by writing book intro instead of researching his next record

We music fans have long known that Sufjan Stevens is one of the most literary songwriters this world’s got. Now the publishing world is finally catching up – Stevens will provide the introduction to The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2007, edited by Dave Eggers and due out in October from Houghton Mifflin. The collection will contain all sortsa stuff – fiction, nonfiction pieces, comics, even blog posts (maybe this one made the cut!). And while I’m thrilled that Stevens is getting attention outside of the indie music world, I wish he would stop procrastinating and get down to recording his next album, which I sure hope is Texas, ‘cuz I bet that one will be really good.
