Hot On The Heels...

Comes this little update from

jónsi’s debut solo album “go” will be released march 22nd 2010 in europe, march 23rd in usa. the album contains nine songs, most of which are sung in english, and was co-produced by jónsi, alex somers and peter katis (the national, interpol). jónsi will be embarking on an extensive world tour throughout 2010, of which more information will be annonced later.

“go” initally began as a low-key acoustic record, but, according to jónsi, “somewhere along the line it just sort of exploded”. the result is a joyful and dramatic album, featuring ecstatic string, brass and woodwind arrangements by composer nico muhly (antony & the johnsons, grizzly bear), as well as warmer, more melancholic moments.

This comes hot on the heels of his release of Riceboy Sleeps with Alex earlier this year, and amid rumour that the boys are recording for a new sigur rós album due for release next year.

How excited am I? About sixteen thousand exciteds out of ten. Check here.
