Sigur Rós ‘Ekki Múkk’

Seriously exciting news this morning: finally, the one and only Sigur Rós have announced their long awaited new album. It is called ‘Valtari’, and will be released on May 28th. It will be the band’s first traditional LP release since 2008. There’s also a seven song tracklisting, included below, as is the album’s first single, Ekki Múkk. Fuck yeah.

1. Ég Anda
2. Ekki Múkk
3. Varúð
4. Rembihnútur
5. Dauðalogn
6. Varðeldur

As for the track itself, I couldn’t be more excited about it. It seems like the perfect fusion between Sigur Rós’ more upbeat ‘poppy’ music and their older more atmospheric stuff, and that’s exactly what I have been hoping to get from new Sigur Rós material for the better part of three years. This album has instantly jumped to the top of my 2012 anticipated releases list.
