Sufjan Steven’s heartbreaking ode to his late mother, Carrie & Lowell, was one of our favorite albums of 2015. Now, Stevens—through his Asthmatic Kitty record label—has posted a full concert video of the tour that he put on in support of the album, coverings its songs, throwing out an elaborate light show, and even ending on a cover of “Hotline Bling.” For such a dour but beautiful album, it’s a surprisingly banging show.

The posting coincides with two other Carrie & Lowell-related announcements: a live album, out now on Apple Music and Spotify, and a mixtape of B-sides and outtakes. That’ll be available on November 20; meanwhile, Stevens’ new album with The National’s Bryce Dessner and Nico Muhly is out on June 9.
