Sigur Ros Recording New Album

Icelandic rock outfit Sigur Ros has finished principal recording for its next studio album. “The foundations for all the album’s songs have now been recorded,” reads a post on the group’s official Web site. “The boys are adding layers to the songs and will be joined by the girls of [longtime collaborators] Amina later this week to start recording strings for most of these songs.”

As of last month, Sigur Ros had put down nine songs on tape. “Most of these songs will appear on the new album but some may end up on an EP, or even released online, though this hasn’t been decided quite yet,” the site says.

The as-yet-untitled set is expected in late spring/early summer via Geffen. It will be the follow-up to 2002’s “( ),” which debuted at No. 51 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 220,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
