Sigur rós have begun recording their new album and expect to finish it later this year. According to bass-player Georg "Goggi" Hólm, it remains to be seen whether the band will be taking a totally new direction on the album.
“We have finished recording a few songs but some more things need to be done. We don’t know exactly where the album is heading yet. We are really just experimenting at this stage. Some of the songs we recorded are old songs which we had written a while ago, unreleased material which we never got a chance to finish; we decided it was time they were recorded.”
Georg also said there is a possibility the album will be released this year but nothing is confirmed at this point.
