Hear the first song from their new album tonight and download the track FOR FREE.
The dreamy icelandic band will be unveiling the first song from their fifth album tonight (May 27th) on Radio One by Zane Lowe. The track will then be available worldwide for free download, via www.sigurros.com from 7.30pm GMT. Yippee!
As usual the band have chosen to name their album with something a little more exciting than Sigur Ros V. Try saying this and rubbing your belly at the same time – Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust, or in English With a buzz in our ears we play endlessly.
It's in the shops on on June 23rd on EMI Records although a pre-sale for the album will begin on www.sigurros.com on June 2nd and the album will be available to stream in full from June 9th.
And here's some more info for any fact fans out there. With A Buzz… was co-produced by the band and renowned producer Flood and was recorded in New York City (at Sear Sound Studios), London (at Assault and Battery Studios and Abbey Road), Reykjavík (at Álafoss, the band’s studio, as well as a church in Reykjavik) and Havana, Cuba. Whereas Sigur Rós’ last release – the critically-acclaimed tour film Heima, chronicling their free tour throughout Iceland – took the band to their homeland, their newest creation, With A Buzz…, is the first album in the band’s career to be made outside of Iceland. It is also their first album to feature the band's out lead singer Jón “Jónsi” Thor Birgisson’s singing in English on one track (the remainder are sung in Icelandic).
So now you know!
