Sigur Ros streaming their new album, ‘Valtari’ (listen); have a new video

by Andrew Sacher

Sigur Ros

This past Thursday (5/17), Sigur Ros streamed their new album, Valtari, at 7 PM in every timezone worldwide during what they were calling “Valtari Hour.” If you missed that stream (or even if you didn’t miss it, but want to listen to it more), it’s now streaming on NPR.

Valtari is the band’s first record since 2008’s Meo suo i eryum vio spilum endalaust, and first since coming off their recent hiatus. Forgoing the upbeat material they began toying with on Meo suo, and especially on Jonsi’s solo album, Valtari is the band’s most ambient record since ( ), and easily one of their strongest. The album drops on May 29 via EMI/XL.

Catch Sigur Ros on tour this summer, which stops in NYC for the sold out Celebrate Brooklyn show at Prospect Park on 7/31.

The band also have a new video for album opener, “Eg Anda.” Check that out, along with the video for “Ekki Mukk,” below…
