Sigur Ros announced a new album titled Valtari and posted a video for the presumed first single, Ekki Mukk earlier this week.
Despite being on hiatus since 2010, they actually have been quite busy. Lead singer Jonsi released a solo album, Go, and also composed the score to the film We Bought A Zoo. The band also released Inni, a live album/video in September and now comes word of a new album.
The 8-song album will be released on May 29, and is available for pre-order right here.
If that wasn't enough, they are also re-releasing Hvarf/Heim, their collection of unreleased material and acoustic renditions on colored vinyl for Record Store Day. A limited run of 1250 copies will be sent to participating independent record stores.
