Sigur Ros ‘chuck away’ their ‘nearly completed’ new album

Icelandic Four-piece to take a break to have babies

Sigur Ros have revealed that they have “chucked away” the work they’ve done on their new album.

The as-yet untitled follow-up to 2008’s ‘Með Suð I Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust’, was “near completion” according to a blog on last May, but frontman Jonsi Birgisson has said they are going to “start it all again”.

“We haven’t got another [Sigur Ros] album ready – It was just a rumour,” Birgisson told “We started to record something, but then we chucked it all away. So I think we are going to have to start it all again.”

When asked if the band are on a break, he confirmed, “Yes we are on a break at the moment. Everybody in the band is having babies.”

Meanwhile, Jonsi Birgisson will release his debut solo album ‘Go’ on March 22.
