Sigur Rós announced the release of then new studio album Kveikur for this June 17th and 18th.
Kveikur is a self-produced album and the first the band will release since they signed with XL Records. The announcement includes the release of the first single from the album, “Brennisteinn”. The single comes along with a new video directed by Andrew Huang. Also last Friday the band premiered the song that entitles the album during their first appearance on US television in over a decade, “Kveikur”.
