Laura Studarus: Are you thinking of doing another solo album?

Jónsi: I think it would be really fun. In between this touring I’m doing now and the rest of the year I’m definitely going to work with the Sigur Rós guys. We’ll work on a new album. Maybe a new album in 2011. But in between that it would be fun to do a solo. It would be really fun.

Laura Studarus: So you you’re definitely looking to go back with Sigur Rós?

Jónsi: I think so. Definitely.

Laura Studarus: I know a lot of people who are holding their breath for that.

Jónsi: Yeah, definitely. It’ll be really cool.
