Sigur Ros Work On Fourth LP

Published: 2004-12-23
Fans of experimental pop band Sigur Ros will be glad to know that a new long player can be expected from the Icelanders in the New Year. The new batch of songs are currently without a title, but the record can be expected to be on shelves sometime in the months known as "late spring/early summer" (postings on the band's web site are saying May). The new album will be the follow-up to the critically acclaimed '( )', which was released in the fall of 2002.

Through a posting on the band's official site (, the members of Sigur Ros had this to say about the progress of their new project: "The foundations for all the album's songs have now been recorded. The boys are adding layers to the songs and will be joined by the girls of Amina later this week to start recording strings for most of these songs."

Upon its release, the new album from Sigur Ros will be the quartet's fourth full-length record. Their debut album 'Von' was unleashed in 1997, introducing the world to the four-piece's unique ambient sound. Most recently Sigur Ros released an EP entitled 'Ba Ba Ti Ki Di Do' that ran 20 minutes but contained only 3 tracks. Creating fairly inaccessible music but still somehow being very successful, Sigur Ros' last LP '( )' was comprised entirely of songs written in "Hopelandic", a language that the band invented themselves.
