The band say new music is more 'out there'

Sigur Ros have announced that they have been busy recording a new album in their native Iceland.

In a posting on the band’s website, they wrote that they have been working in their Sundlaugin Studio the past few weeks recording the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust’.

The new album is reportedly near completion, and according to the band, “the recordings have been going very well and that the album is taking form as a slower and more ambient record than ‘með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust’ and ‘takk’.”

Drummer Orri Páll DýRason described the music as “melodic but much less noisy and more ‘out there’ than previous albums”.

The band are aiming to release the as-yet-untitled album some time in 2010.
