Sigur Ros need no introduction and they've announced their return with the forthcoming 'Valtari' LP, due out on May 28th. An album title which reminds me of 'Flash Gordon' for some reason. Alongside the news, they've also given us our first taste of the new studio album in 'Ekki Múkk'. Listen to the track below and/or check out its video.
I'm in two minds about the return of the band, partly lamenting the abandonment of Jonsi's excellent solo work (leading to a debut record that was the FG Album Of 2010) while also eagerly anticipating the new material. The wait has been worthwhile, with 'Ekki Múkk' proving to be another sublime offering.
