Sigur Ros Announce New Album
2012-03-26 by Eli EMERITUS | 82 Comments

Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Ros have announced the release date and name of their sixth studio album. Valtari will be the first record since 2008's Með suð * eyrum við spilum endalaust. It has been hinted at that the new record will feature a more ambient driven sound, as opposed to the more "poppy" aesthetic of more previous albums. Valtari will be released on May 28th.

A teaser trailer has been put up on the band's website and can be seen below:

Tracklist:

Ég Anda'

'Ekki Múkk'

'Varúð'

'Rembihnútur'

'Dauðalogn'

'Varðeldur'

'Valtari'

Also I realize it should be "announceS," but I literally used up every possible letter to fit the title in, so needless to say cuts were made.

Saying Sigur Ros hasn't put out anything good since ( ) is completely ignorant.
Even if you don't like the songs as much on Takk and the last album, it is pretty hard for me to imagine anyone not being moved in one way or another. So excited for this and the song is beautiful as expected.
