Paste Magazine recapped from the Wall Street Journal of all places…

This week has been a big one for Sigur Rós with the release of their concert film Inni. But maybe some of the biggest news about the band, who has been on hiatus since 2008, is that they’ve got a new album scheduled to come out this spring.

As the WSJ reported today, the hiatus took a bit longer than the band expected, with several band members starting families in the off time. But the band started work on this new album when frontman Jónsi Birgisson ended his tour for the album Go.

“It was like coming home to see the guys again. It felt natural,” Birgisson told the WSJ.

WSJ writer Jim Fusilli heard some excerpts of the unnamed album, which he said “promises to be as exceptional as the best of the band’s catalog.” Bassist Goggi Hólm called the album “introverted” and Birgisson said the album was “floaty and minimal.” That’s about as much explanation as you could hope for from a group of guys whose best-known album is titled ( ).

Jonsi’s new solo album/soundtrack, We Bought A Zoo, is also coming out soon (Dec 13, 2011).
