New Music: Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos – “Stained Glass Windows”

Surprise—after a quiet 2016, Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos is making a Christmas album, and it’s out this Friday. Angelakos announced the project today with an original holiday song called “Stained Glass Windows,” a sentimental, stripped-down piano number accompanied by dreamy footage of a children’s holiday pageant.

The 15-track collection is dubbed Merry Christmas, Mr. Fields OST, and described as a “Christmas video album.” Did the mastermind of Passion Pit write and score an entire film about a grade-school holiday celebration? We’ll find out on December 16, when the whole thing arrives from Frenchkiss. Angelakos’s most recent album as Passion Pit was 2015’s KindredWatch “Stained Glass Windows” below.
