The Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi has announced a new album titled Shiver that is due out October 2.In advance of the album he has released the second single for a track called Swill. This is an interesting song for Jonsi. It features an artistically impressive video which is at this point just expected from him. He never disappoints. The song itself has a little more of an indie edge to it than a typical song from Jonsi or Sigur Ros and is sung in English.
The album will have a few special guest surprises as well. Robyn is a guest on the track Salt Licorice and the one and only Liz Fraser will appear on the track Cannibal. That’s pretty amazing star power which makes this one of our most anticipated albums of the year.
Last month, Jonsi released the first single Exhale last month which is a different style song mixing some elements of trip hop and electronica.
The track listing for Shiver is below. Pre-orders are available now at Amazon.
- Cannibal (with Elizabeth Fraser)
- Sumarið sem aldrei kom
- Salt Licorice (with Robyn)
- Beautiful Boy
