Sigur Rós : Valtari
As promised, Sigur Rós will return this spring with their sixth studio album. According to this month’s Q Magazine (via the band’s message board), the LP is called Valtari and will arrive in the UK on May 28th (and presumably the following day in the U.S.) Produced by frontman Jónsi, along with his partner and frequent collaborator Alex Somers, the album includes at least seven tracks, which you can find listed out below. In a previous interview, the band used adjectives like “ambient,” “introverted,” “floaty,” and “minimal” to describe the album’s sound. Speaking with Q, bassist Georg Hólm added that the the album lives up to its title — which translates to “steamroller” in English. “The music kind of just rolls over you. In a good way,” he explained. For his part, Jónsi described the album as “heavy and floaty” and also said “there’s more electric stuff than before… but don’t worry, we haven’t made a dance record.” He also revealed that there will be no English lyrics.

    can’t wait for this! I hope there will be a studio version of “Lúppulagið” on it…

    • Avatar of Al

      Lúppulagið isn’t on the tracklist… it’s the same as it was with Nýja Lagið back then :(

      • Lúppúlagid has been released as a studio version it is on “INNI”

    • Yes, the track “Varðeldur” is the studio version of “Lúppulagið”

      • That’s right. When I listened to this song from Valtari Hour, I was aware that this is definitely Lúppulagið. Totally love it.

    Very encouraging: “i really can’t remember why we started this record, i no longer know what we were trying to do back then. i do know session after session went pear-shaped, we lost focus and almost gave up…did give up for a while. but then something happened and form started to emerge, and now i can honestly say that it’s the only sigur rós record i have listened to for pleasure in my own house after we’ve finished it.” – georg

    It should be noted that the leak is an MP3 V4 encode. Those are usually not high quality rips and are forbidden on the most respected torrent and downloading sites. http://i.imgur.com/gMCuA.jpg
