|Sigur Ros Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust Limited Deluxe CD+DVD Set.
Sigur Rós round off their phenomenal year with the release of a new single, a special edition of their recent Top 5 album including two stunning new films and a 196 page hardbound book, plus a hugely anticipated UK tour featuring their biggest solo headline shows to date in the UK.
The single ‘Við spilum endalaust’ is one of their most recent album’s highlights and a moment of sheer joyful exuberance at their live shows – witnessed in its full glory at their triumphant headline performance at this year’s Latitude Festival, which was widely hailed as one of the most astounding sets of the summer and has been nominated as Headline Act of the Year in the UK Festival Awards.
On the day of its release Sigur Rós will proudly unveil two beautiful films directed by Nick Abrahams that document much of the recording of their album and early touring. The first film is a stunning, moving, hypnotic and transcendent piece of cinema. Set to the band’s music and traversing Iceland, London, America and Mexico – through ice and heat, hurricanes and drama – it captures the essence of Sigur Rós as people, as a band and as a unique musical force in both grandeur and humour; a genuine work of art in all ways.
The second film is a documentary about the recording of the most ambitious piece of music Sigur Rós have ever undertaken. ‘Ára bátur’ was recorded live at Abbey Road by the band with a 69-piece orchestra and a 20-piece boys choir, conducted by Icelandic maestro Daniel Bjarnasson. The film is a thoughtful and engaging insight into the recording of a career highlight for the band and will bring a lump to the throat of even the most hardened cynic.
The deluxe edition of the album ‘Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust’ will be released on the 17th Nov. contains the album, a DVD including both films mentioned above plus the banned video to the track ‘Gobbledigook’ (nominated for Video of the Year), a 196-page hardcover cloth-bound book of photographs shot by Eva Vermandel and each special edition will not only be individually numbered but include a unique strip of 16mm film from the ‘Gobbledigook’ video shoot, specially mounted within the front cover of the book..
