Q Magazine published an article revealing the details of Sigur Rós’ 6th studio album, Valtari. The album is due out May 28th on Smekkleysa (Bad Taste).
Ég Anda (“I Breathe”) Ekki Múkk (“Not a Peep”) Varúð (“Caution”) Rembihnútur (“Double Calm”) Varðeldur (“Campfire”) Valtari (“Roller”)
The translations are likely be a little off, but still provide some light into the content of the new record. In a previous interview, the band called it “floaty and minimal”, “ambient”, and “introverted”. An album titled “steamroller” seems to contradict those descriptions a bit, but who knows what tricks the band will pull this time around. Oh, and for you Jónsi & Alex/Parachutes fans, the record is apparently being produced by Alex Somers.
If you’re in Europe (or Montreal), there’s a slough of August tour dates up on their homepage. Now everyone join me in crossing your fingers for more North American tour dates.
“Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them — if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.”—The Catcher in the Rye J. D. Salinger (via messywhims)
