According to a front page article in today’s Fréttablaðið, recordings for the new Sigur Rós album due out in September, are now complete. The recordings have taken over a year and a half, mainly in the band’s studio in Mosfellsbær with finishing touches made New York.
Most of the songs are sung in Icelandic but some are sung in “vonlensku” or hopelandish, a language invented by singer Jónsi while working on their last album. Fréttablaðið reports that the new album is different from the last album and has more in common with the band’s album from 2000,Ágætis Byrjun,. Sigur Rós is about to start touring Europe, Japan and Australia.
