Jónsi of Iceland's Sigur Rós and frequent collaborator Alex Somers have surprise released a new album, Lost and Found. It is a companion piece their Riceboy Sleeps, which they are celebrating the 10th anniversary of right now with a North American tour. Friend and producer Sidney Satorsky collaborated with the duo on the album. Stream Lost and Found below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as their tour dates.

Somers had this to say in a press release: "Lost and Found is a sibling album to Riceboy Sleeps. It falls somewhere between what was, what is, and what will be. Tape experiments, modular synth processing, and acoustic soundscapes drift in and out of focus. Sound friends that you may have heard or seen before appear; familiar, but different.... The album has no linear relationship to Riceboy Sleeps. It treats Riceboy Sleeps as a place to begin and finds moments from that album to open up to new moments that at times give glimpses of places within Riceboy Sleeps and at other times put you somewhere entirely new."

1. Hundslappadrífa
