Two Sufjan Stevens songs were featured on this soundtrack: "The Tallest Man, The Broadest Shoulders Part 1: The Great Frontier" and "All the Trees of the Field Will Clap Their Hands".
Stevens has released eight original full length albums since 1999. A multi-talented musician, Stevens plays and records a large range of the instruments heard on his albums himself, from banjo to xylophone to oboe.
Perhaps his most well-known album is his 2005 release, Illinois, a concept album centered around references to places, events and people from the state of Illinois. Stevens' most popular single, "Chicago," comes from this album.
