On Sunday night, Detroit-bred singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens, performed his Oscar-nominated song, “Mystery of Love” from the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack during the award ceremony. Backed by a dream cast of a band, including former collaborator St. Vincent and Moses Sumney, Stevens imbued a serene aura of light on the audience with his whispery voice, finger-picking, and angelic harmonies.
While Stevens didn’t end up winning the Oscar, he could be in contention for best dressed for his candy-striped dragon getup. Thanks for making us proud, Sufjan.

Stevens will release a 10-inch record featuring three of his songs from the Call Me By Your Name soundtrack for Record Store Day on Saturday, April 21.
