Jonsi Birgisson says the band are taking time out
Sigur Ros‘ Jonsi Birgisson has said that the band have scrapped their new album.
Birgisson revealed that contrary to reports that the band were on the verge of completing the follow-up to 2008 album ‘Með Suð I Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust’, they’ve in fact had to restart the entire project.
“We haven’t got another [Sigur Ros] album ready – It was just a rumour,” Birgisson told Spinnermusic.co.uk. “We started to record something, but then we chucked it all away. So I think we are going to have to start it all again.”
Birgisson, who releases his new solo album ‘Go’ on March 22, went on to state that the rest of Sigur Ros are currently taking time out. “Yes we are on a break at the moment. Everybody in the band is having babies.”
