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 Sigur-Ros.co.uk 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 SpinnerMusic.co.uk. “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.”
