Sigur Rós Ready New Album For 2012
November 17th, 2011 | News
The upcoming release, as yet untitled, will be the band’s first studio album since 2008 after what was initially supposed to be a short break after their extensive promotional tour for the album Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust (With A Buzz In Our Ears We Play Endlessly), as documented in ‘inni’. The members of Sigur Rós – singer Jónsi Birgisson excluded – took the opportunity for some family time, while Jónsi made his solo album ‘Go’, before taking it on tour.
After Jónsi returned, the band reconvened in the studio, and the fruits of their labours will be heading towards our ears in a matter of months. The band revealed in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, that we can expect a "minimal, introverted, ambient" release. The Wall Street Journal’s rock critic Jim Fusilli describes the excerpt he heard as "thrilling".
