Water way to make a record, eh readers?...

Sigur Ros have started work on their new album at a converted swimming pool complex in their native ICELAND.

The group have returned home after a year of touring their current album ‘Ágætis Byrjun’. The group started work on the as-yet-untitled new album at the start of December, according to the US based Allstar news service.

Bassist Georg Holm said: “We’ve started recording a new record and in December we’ll start working a little bit more. The new music is very similar, but I guess we are rocking a little bit more now.”

Some of the album is to be recorded with ‘Ágætis Byrjun’ producer Ken Thomas. The work will take place in an old swimming pool complex that has now been converted into a recording studio in the Icelandic capital Reykjavik.

The new material is not expected before late summer 2002.
