Jónsi of Sigur Rós Preps Solo Record
- Words: Patric Fallon
Breaking away from his Sigur Rós and Jónsi & Alex projects, Icelandic frontman Jón Thor Birgisson has readied his debut solo album for XL, entitled Go. The album was co-produced with partner Alex Somers and Peter Katis (The National, Interpol) and recorded throughout Jónsi's homeland and in Connecticut. Go also features arrangements and piano work from Philip Glass protégé Nico Muhly (known best for his work with Antony & the Johnsons, Grizzly Bear, and Björk, to name a few), which, paired with Birgisson's signature hushed voice, could prove to be something otherworldly. When Go hits retailers March 23, we'll know for sure. Check out the album's tracklist below.
