The first in SUFJAN STEVENS' ambitious 50 States recording project, wherein Stevens plans to release a representative album of each state in the union. Starting with Michigan, Stevens delivers a geographical tone poem that draws from personal antidote, regional history, and state heritage, bringing social and political grievances into the mix. Rock, jazz, pop, folk and bluegrass all get the treatment as Stevens pays tribute to "The Great Lake State." Includes guest performances from the DANIELSON FAMILE and JOHN RINGHOFER (HALF-HANDED CLOUD).
