Sufjan Stevens Wants Your Holiday Songs

Sufjan Stevens sure does like his holiday tunes. The singer/songwriter has already released 42 of them in his Songs for Christmas box set, and this fall, he's writing and recording yet another. But this time, there's a twist: He wants to swap his song for a fan-written song in what might be one of the most unusual gift exchanges ever.

Here's how Stevens' record label, Asthmatic Kitty, explains the contest:

Sufjan's song becomes your song. You can hoard it for yourself, sell it to a major soft drink corporation, use it in your daughter's first Christmas video, or share it for free on your website. No one except Sufjan and you will hear his song, unless you decide otherwise. You get the song and all legal rights to it. We get the same rights to your song.

So you end up with a Sufjan-penned Christmas tune all for yourself, and your song could end up on a Pepsi commercial? Score!

All the details are over here, but here are the basics: All entries must be received by Dec. 1, the label gets permission to stream all the entries online, and a winner — based on creativity and originality — will be announced around Dec. 15.

Anyone here ready to pen a new holiday classic?
