Listen to Sufjan Stevens new song ‘Tonya Harding’

Sufjan Stevens has shared a new track tributing to the former American figure skater Tonya Harding.

Describing the figure skater in an accompanying essay as “America’s sweetheart with a dark twist“, Sufjan describes her rise from working-class. “Tonya shines bright in the pantheon of American history simply because she never stopped trying her hardest. She fought classism, sexism, physical abuse and public rebuke to become an incomparable American legend.

The track is available now on cassette with a vinyl due to arrive soon. Listen to the beautifully uplifting ‘Tonya Harding‘ below.

Although Sufjan offered up the track to the director of the forthcoming film I, Tonya it remains unrelated. ‘Tonya Harding‘ is the musicians first new offering since his recent The Greatest Gift—Outtakes, Remixes, & Demos from Carrie & Lowell mixtape.
