I know what you're thinking. If you slow down Justin Bieber and it actually sounds like Sigur Ros, then speeding up Sigur Ros must sound like Justin Bieber right? Not quite.
As previously reported, Jonsi is the frontman for Sigur Ros and is heading out for a North American tour. His album will be released in April and he has recently released the second track from the album on youtube (click Read More for the video). The track is called, "Go Do", is vastly more upbeat then the Sigur Ros tracks. His first track from the album, "Boy Lilikoi" is also available on youtube.
Jonsi from Sigur Ros will be touring North America to support his solo album, "Go", which is set to be released on March 22nd.
Sigur Ros had been working on their next studio album when they decided to scrap it and start over.There's a question to how far along the album was when they decided to ditch it. In a blog post on sigur-ros.co.uk, they say that the album is "nearing completion" which was posted on May 27, 2010. Then seven months later, Jonsi tells Spinner Music that, "We haven't got another [Sigur Ros] album ready. It was just a rumour."
Not sure why the sigur-ros.co.uk "official blog" is spreading rumors, but until they return, we can enjoy Jonsi's solo album and his upcoming tour.
