Combining the songs from musical theatre composer Stephen Sondheim with the ethereal sounds of indie-pop performer Sufjan Steves, singer-songwriter Eleri Ward has created her own brand: SUF/SOND. The first SUF/SOND album, A Perfect Little Death from Ghostlight Records, drops digitally June 4, but Playbill has an exclusive first listen at the track "Sunday" from the album. Listen above.
Ward's cover of “Johanna (Reprise)” posted on TikTok prompted listener requests for more, and from that, an album was born. She recorded the entire album from a closet in her apartment during the pandemic. A Perfect Little Death contains 13 tracks of Sondheim numbers.
