Sufjan Stevens has launched a Christmas song exchange.

Last year the singer released ‘Songs For Christmas’ a seasonal themed box set.

According to the ‘Great Sufjan Xmas Xchange’ involves fans writing an original Christmas song, recording it and emailing the song to the label.

Asthmatic Kitty will then pick a winner and “that person will trade rights to their song for rights to Sufjan song.

Sufjan 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.

“By submitting your song, you also give us permission to stream it online.”

Legal details can be seen here. The winner will be announced “around December 15.”
