Newsday poses ten questions to Sufjan Stevens.

Do you feel like you've been overly hyped? Have you found anything disturbing in your newfound hype? It's more of an abstraction at this point. I'm very much aware that something in fashion now is quickly out of date. I'm suspicious of that kind of attention. But it is important to be gracious and remain encouraged by it.
