“Ekki Múkk” is the first single from Sigur Rós’ recently confirmed album, ‘Valtari.’ The seven track LP is set to be released stateside on May 29th via EMI/XL. Frontman Jónsi described the album as “heavy and floaty”, he also mentioned that there are no English lyrics.
Sigur Rós’ bassist, Georg Holmi, offered this bit of insight about ‘Valtari’ on the band’s website: “Really can’t remember why we started this record, I no longer know what we were trying to do back then. I do know session after session went pear-shaped, we lost focus and almost gave up…did give up for a while. But then something happened and form started to emerge, and now I can honestly say that it’s the only Sigur Rós record I have listened to for pleasure in my own house after we’ve finished it.”
