Jónsi of Iceland’s Sigur Rós has released his first solo album in 10 years, Shiver, today via Krunk. Now that it’s out you can stream the whole thing below. Also, yesterday we posted our review of the album and you can read that here.

Pick up our current print issue (Issue 67) to read our exclusive interview with Jónsi on Shiver.

Shiver includes “Exhale,” a new song Jónsi shared in April via a video for the track he co-directed with Ribisi. When the album was announced, he shared another new song from it, “Swill,” via a Barnaby Roper-directed video for the track. Then he shared another song from it, “Cannibal,” which featured Elizabeth Fraser (formerly of Cocteau Twins) and was also shared via a video. Then he shared another song from it, “Salt Licorice,” which featured Swedish pop singer Robyn and was shared via a video.

Shiver was co-produced by A. G. Cook (of PC Music).

It’s been 10 years since Jónsi’s last solo album, 2010’s debut solo album Go. Since then he’s kept busy, including contributing songs to the How to Train Your Dragon films and teaming up with Stockholm-based visual artist/electro-acoustic composer Carl Michael von Hausswolff as Dark Morph (the ambient project released a second album in May). Sigur Rós has also released two albums in that period, 2012’s Valtari and 2013’s Kveikur.

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured
I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly
benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask! Belgien Trikot
