In 2007, Alec Duffy won Sufjan Stevens’ Xmas Song Xchange Contest with his song, Every Day is Christmas and exchanged the rights to the song for Stevens’ The Lonely Man of Winter, (a song that Stevens wrote and recorded specifically in response to Duffy’s song). Using the opportunity to recreate a time before the internet, Duffy and his friend, composer Dave Malloy decided to create an experience in listening to the song. They held listening sessions, which started at their homes and soon expanded across the country, as well as a few sessions in Europe. Now the original Sufjan songs gets released on a Limited 7" and comes backed by Sufjan’s own newer version of Lonely Man in Winter recorded in 2018. This new version is produced by Thomas Bartlett (Doveman) and features a performance by Melissa Mary Ahern.
