Win the Rights to an Original Sufjan Stevens Composition

sufjanstevens Win the Rights to an Original Sufjan Stevens CompositionSufjan Stevens, fresh from The BQE glow, is making a Christmas CD and you’ll could win the rights to one of his songs!

Pitchfork explains:

It’s "The Great Sufjan Song Xmas Xchange"! And those Asthmatic Kitty cats explain it much better than I ever could, so here’s them:

Here’s how it works: write an original Christmas song, record it, and email the song to us. Asthmatic Kitty will pick a winner, and that person will trade rights to their song for rights to Sufjan’s song.

Just like a gift exhange, Sufjan’s song becomes your song. You can hoard it for yourself, sell it to a major soft drink corporation, use it in your daughter’s first Christmas video, or share it for free on your website. No one except Sufjan and you will hear his song, unless you decide otherwise. You get the song and all legal rights to it. We get the same rights to your song.

In summation: you get an original Sufjan Stevens song all to yourself! And Sufjan gets to have at your song! As if he didn’t have enough Xmas jams.

Check the details and legal mumbo-jumbo here. All entries are due by midnight on December 1, and AK expects to announce the winner around December 15. They’ll also be streaming entries on their site.
