Sigur Ros Announces New Single 'Isjaki'

Last month, Sigur Ros announced news of a new studio album, Kveikur. Self-produced by the three members of Sigur Ros - J¢n è¢r Birgisson, Georg Holm and Orri P ll Dìrason - Kveikur will be released on 17th June and is their first album since signing to XL Recordings worldwide.

The news came on the eve of the band's biggest US headline show to date at New York's Madison Square Garden, and was marked by two new pieces of music: the epic 7min 46s studio recording of lead track 'Brennisteinn' and a live US TV performance of the album's title track on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show 

Today Sigur Ros reveal a new single 'Ösjaki', a further example of the band's shift towards a more direct and melodic sound. 'Ösjaki' will be available as an instant download from midnight tonight for fans who pre-order the Kveikur via iTunes.

Meanwhile, following two incredible sets at this year's Coachella, Sigur Ros are continuing to play live across the globe.
