As the countdown continues for the release of Sigur Rós’s new album, Kveikur, they’ve decided to give their fans a little something to chew on. And that little something happens to be…the WHOLE ALBUM!!! In it’s entirety. Available to stream at their website.
The band’s only request is that fans publicize what the album makes them “feel, see, and imagine.” As you listen, posts actively pop-up next to the stream in languages that can be identified as representing at least six of the seven continents. Antarctica, where you at?
Reykjavík will rejoice on Monday, June 17 when the album hits the streets. Perhaps as much as it did when the boys were featured on The Simpsons last month, remember that? Well, if you missed it, we can fill you in:
