Sigur Rós: new album released in June
Icelandic quartet Sigur Rós will release their new studio LP Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (translation: With a buzz in our ears we play endlessly) on June 23 via EMI.
One of the album's tracks, 'Gobbledigook', is available to download for free from the official Sigur Rós website, here.
The album, the band's fifth, has a cover with bums on it. Look:
Bums! Those of you who listen to such things can hear 'Gobbledigook' on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show tonight - it's the world exclusive first play. Go, Zane. FYI: you won't be able to download the song for free until after it has been played - aim for around half seven in the PM.
A special deluxe edition of the album will be released later in the year, featuring a ‘Making Of…’ book, a film and more. It can be pre-ordered via the band's official site from June 2.
