Sufjan Stevens Releases New Music Video For "Too Much," Performs it on Jimmy Fallon (VIDEO)

It was a busy weekend for indie king Sufjan Stevens, according to Pitchfork.

He released a music video for his song "Too Much" today. The video kicks off with a colorful visual mess that looks like it came straight out of an M.I.A. video. The rest of it is a series of hipsters that are sporting a variety of masks while dancing wildly. The video is a little high energy compared to the song itself, but it's so fun to watch that the mismatch hardly matters.

Sufjan also made his debut television television performance this weekend. He played "Too Much" on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Friday night and, as Buzz Grinder said, he was dressed a lot like Ke$ha on her infamous performance on Saturday Night Live earlier this year.

Check out the "Too Much" music video and Late Night performance below.
