Sigur Rós are to release two new films as part of a deluxe reissue of their latest studio album ‘Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust’ on November 17.
The first is a “transcendent piece of cinema” filmed in Iceland, America, Mexico and the UK, and is set to the band’s music. The second film is a documentary, recorded live at Abbey Road Studios with Sigur Ros performing their piece ‘Ára bátur’ accompanied by a 69-piece orchestra and 20-piece choir.
The films, both directed by Nick Abrahams will also screen at London’s Covent Garden on November 10.
