We all know there's a new Sigur Ros album in the pipeline for next year right? Right.
Do people know Jonsi is working on a live show based on the How To Train Your Dragon soundtrack? We're not sure. Someone we know told us that someone they know has been working on it in Reykjavik. It's all a bit chinese whispery at the moment, but it sounds rather exciting indeed.
In the meantime (and that makes it sound like what follows is filler - it is ANYTHING but), there is new music from Jonsi on they way. The Icelandic frontman has been working with director Cameron Crow on music for his forthcoming movie We Bought The Zoo, which looks OK we suppose, and the first new track from the soundtrack is now online in YouTube form.
'Gathering Stories' sounds an awful lot like Jonsi's solo album, and the happier end of that, and since his debut solo release Go was one of the best albums of 2010, all new material in that vein is more than welcomed.
Jonsi 'Gathering Stories
Amazing. AMAZING. It makes us feel better about everything.
The We Bought The Zoo soundtrack will also include second new Jonsi track, 'AEvin Endar', plus reworkings of solo tracks 'Sinking Friendships' and 'Go Do', plus Sigur Ros calling-card, 'Hoppipolla'.
