Jonsi of Sigur Ros releases solo album in April

The release date of Jónsi’s debut solo album, ‘Go’, has been confirmed for the week of April 5th around the world*. Featuring 9 songs drawn from the large pool of material amassed by Jónsi during his many years as singer with Sigur Rós, and arranged in collaboration with classical wunderkind Nico Muhly (“one of the hottest composers on the planet” Daily Telegraph last week), the album now has a finished sleeve, conceptualised and realised by Jónsi’s sisters Inga and Lilja.

Meanwhile, details of his first live concerts outside of Sigur Rós have been announced.  The shows which start in North America in April, will feature a brand new band and a stage set designed by 59 Productions. Both these things promise to be drop-dead amazing. The idea of the stage collaboration with 59 Productions is to bring together the worlds of theatre and music in a new and hopefully unique way, in order to create something other than the hoary old cliches that pass for innovation in rock’n’roll. The ideas remain very much “in development”, but there will be some surprises, for sure.

The tour will feature a brand new band and a stage set designed by 59 Productions, bringing together the worlds of theatre and music in a new and hopefully unique way. We are really excited about this project so we’ll be giving you glimpses on jonsi.com in the coming weeks as it progesses.
