Sigur Rós frontman Jonsi Birgisson revelead that the follow-up to their 2008 album “Með Suð I Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust” was almost complete but the band will start new recording session. Back in May the band revealed that their new album was almost completed but it seems that the band wasn’t satisfied with the sessions. This is what Jonsi told Spinner UK:
“We haven’t got another [Sigur Ros] album ready – It was just a rumour. We started to record something, but then we chucked it all away. So I think we are going to have to start it all again.
… we are on a break at the moment. Everybody in the band is having babies.”
Its a real shame since Orri had said that the new record was going to be slower and more ambient than their last, guess we’ll have to wait to at least 2011 for some new material from the band.
Aw man. They didn't have to chuck it. I bet it was amazing no matter what state it was in. Sad day.
nice post. thanks.
