Spring 2012 Will Bring a New Sigur Rós Album

Sigur Rós just released a live concert film and album called INNI. The Icelandic band’s proper studio follow up will follow after the winter snow leaves the ground, in Spring 2012 (via Consequence of Sound).

“As The Wall Street Journal reports, following Jónsi’s 2010 solo tour, the Icelandic collective “went straight to work at their studio, set in a space once occupied by a swimming pool.” Although the initial sessions proved difficult, “the quartet soon found its new focus.”

That new focus, however, resulted in “an ambient album,” at least according to drummer Orri Páll Dýrason. Although a vague description, the band’s other members had plenty of other adjectives to describe the as-yet-to-be-titled sixth LP. Bassist Georg “Goggi” Hólm calls it “introverted,” singer and multi-instrumentalist Jón “Jónsi” Þór Birgisson thinks it’s “floaty and minimal,” while Dýrason added it has “a slow takeoff toward something.”

One thing is for sure – critics will praise it to sound cool love it. While you wait for the new music, check out an older track, Glósóli.
