"Átta" is Sigur Rós' first new studio album in ten years, their most intimate and emotionally direct record to date.
Few bands cut through the noise and distractions of the world to convey a pure, elemental truth or feeling like Sigur Rós. As you can hear on "Átta," the new lineup has given the band a new strength and drive. Multi-instrumentalist Kjartan Sveinsson is back in the band - after leaving in 2012 - and joins frontman Jónsi and bassist Georg Holm.
Recorded on multiple continents - at the band's Sundlaugin studio in Iceland, at the legendary Abbey Road in the U.K., and at several studios in the U.S. - "Átta" leans heavily toward the orchestral, touching on everything that has made Sigur Rós one of the most ambitious and acclaimed bands in recent memory, with nearly ten million albums sold, while signaling an exciting and expansive possibility for their future. On "Átta," the London Contemporary Orchestra, conducted by Robert Ames, plays a prominent role alongside horns played by longtime Icelandic colleagues Brassgat í bala. The album was mixed and co-produced by Paul Corley, another frequent collaborator of the band.
