Sufjan Stevens - Should Have Known Better (V4YS Rework)

One of my favorite Indie/Folk artist, Sufjan Stevens combines musical composing genius, sounds design creativity, to lyrics writing talent.

Evoking the passing away of his mum and the associated grief, his 2015 album "Carrie & Lowell" is nothing short of a masterpiece. If the record is a true "concept album" per se, resonating even louder when listened to in its entirety, I've always been particularly moved by the track "Should Have Known Better", especially its end, where the combination of a beautiful melody, with some hopeful and soothing words edges to a moment of grace. 

Here is a little tribute to it, with a kind of slo-mo/balearish-like twist.
