Sigur Rós Composes For The Simpsons

Published May 3, 2013

Sigur Rós has composed a special piece for an episode of The Simpsons, which airs in the States later this month, mbl reports.  
The episode is expected in part to take place in Iceland, the ancestral home of the character Carl Carlson (of Carl and Lenny… of Karl and Lenin), who first claimed Icelandic heritage in the show’s 14th season. The last time Iceland featured on the Simpsons was in 2010, when the 2008 bank crash was lampooned (see related picture).
According to mbl, the original piece by Sigur Rós weighs heavily into the episode, which also features the band’s members drawn as characters. A Sigur Rós cover of the Simpsons theme song by Danny Elfman is also in the cards.
The episode is scheduled to air on May 19th.
