Earlier this year, Jónsi shared the first preview of the album, an A.G. Cook-produced new single called ‘Exhale’, his first solo music in ten years, and began to tease the follow-up to his acclaimed 2010 solo debut ‘Go’.
Now, he’s announced full details of the new album and shared a video for its next single, ‘Swill’, which you can watch below.
Jónsi’s most recent solo release came back in 2018 in the form of a collection of demos and rarities called ‘Frakkur’, while he toured with regular collaborator Alex Somers last year to celebrate ten years of their acclaimed joint album ‘Riceboy Sleeps’.
A four-star NME review of ‘Frakkur’ described the record as “a treasure trove for true fans, a secret history as enigmatic and beguiling as the man himself”.
“That’s the beauty of this trilogy,” the review continued. “These 25 instrumentals make for curious footnotes, as well as a wonderful mood piece.”
