Sigur Rós Release Special Edition Album
- Words: Lulu McAllister
Fans of Sigur Rós will be pleased to know that the Icelandic post-rock band plans to release a deluxe edition of their ethereal fifth album, Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (“with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly”), which came out last spring.
In addition to the original CD, this special release will include an actual strip of the original 16mm film from the “Gobbledigook” video, a DVD containing two films – one documenting a live recording and the other a Super-8 “film poem” – as well as a 200-page, cloth-bound hardback book of photos of the band taken during their far-flung adventures by acclaimed photographer Eva Vermandel.
You can purchase the album exclusively on the band’s website right now or pick up a copy in stores on Nov. 18th.
