Sad, sad news. Sigur Rós have trashed the recordings of their new album. The Icelandic band’s sixth album, which was said to be almost complete, will not be released. They are now saying it was just a rumour that the album even existed.
This sucks! All we can hope for is that someone gets a hold of it (if it does exist) and leaks it.
Why would they do such a thing? Well, according to an interview with The Guardian, they are going to have babies. Well, I hope they have fun with that!
All kidding aside, it does seem like it’s going to be awhile before we get a new album, but at least we have plenty of material in their back catalogue. And Jonsí Birgisson‘s second album under the Riceboy Sleeps monikor, Go, will be out March 22nd…this one will not be instrumental. So there’s always that.
