!! OMG, Sigur Rós are releasing a new album !!


The soundtrack to your summer of cinematic lovemaking and/or cry-fest will arrive on May 28 in the form the new Sigur Rós album, Valtari. It's the Icelandic quartet's first LP since 2008's Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust and, if the SoundCloud comments on new track "Ekki múkk" are anything to go by, it's going to be another "superb," "haunting," "divine" and " =D " effort.

Listen to "Ekki múkk" above and check out the tracklisting below along with translations of the song titles that we cobbled together after a few cursory Google searches:

1. "Ég anda" ("I Breathe")


2. "Ekki múkk

" ("Not a Peep")
3. "Varúð

" ("Warning")
4. Rembihnútur ("Double Knot")


5. "Dauðalogn" ("Dead Calm")

6. "Varðeldur" ("Campfire")

7. "Valtari" ("Steamroller")
8. Fjögur píanó ("Four Piano")

Sigur Rós will also play a series of gigs in Europe, Japan and Canada this summer. Tour dates after the jump.

Some corrections from your resident Icelandic reader:
1. Icelandic titles are not capitalised except the beginning
2. Êg anda should have an é in it, not a ê and Rembihnûtur should have an ú, not an û. There is no ˆ diacritic in Icelandic.
3. Ekki múkk means "not a peep" or "not a tiny sound", something you say to people when you want them to shut up. I have no idea where "seagull" (mávur) came from.
