In our continuing coverage of Sufjan Stevens’ re-entry into the pop music idiom, we bring you the latest giveaway track from the forthcoming “The Age of Adz” album. This is the second song from the album to be given away by Stevens’ label, Asthmatic Kitty in advance of the October release date. The first track was the mid-tempo electro ballad “I Walked” and prompted comparisons to the much maligned Owl City. Did the label release the much more experimental track “Too Much” to quell fears in the blogosphere that “The Age of Adz” would be too MOR for their tastes? Listen to the song and let us know in the comments. <a href="http://sufjanstevens.bandcamp.com/track/too-much">Too Much by Sufjan Stevens</a>
