Sigur Ros have released details of their forthcoming album which will be out on 24 June via XL (I know, ANOTHER band have signed with them!). The album is called...erm...this might not be right, "Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust", which I'm reliably told translates as "thank you to the BBC for making us a shit load of cash by using our song over and over again". No, it doesn't really, it means "With a buzz in our ears we play endlessly". In keeping with XL's fondness for letting their artists experiment with release dates and formats you can download the first song 'Gobbledigook' from here
Not sure if this is the first single, or merely a teaser but it's a slight change in style, more acoustic and less overly epic then their previous stuff. I'm still waiting for their oft-delayed gabba album, but maybe that's just me...
