Brand new sealed limited edition RSD release of 1000.
On the longest day of summer 2016 sigur rós drove the whole way round iceland’s ring road, broadcasting the entire 1332km journey live on youtube. the soundtrack to this “slow tv” adventure was created using generative music software taking the multi-track stems of the sigur rós song ‘ovedur’ and endlessly reinventing them to create new and unpredictable musical directions in real time. the very best moments from the 24 hour journey have now been pared down to a single album of great and reflective beauty. 8 tracks. previously unreleased."
sigur rós are releasing a series of four limited-edition vinyl albums for record store day u.k. (april 21). originally released with handmade sleeves by icelandic artist sigga bjorg as part of the band’s norður og niður festival in iceland, the rare recordings can now be bought in a second limited edition run.
for the record store day u.k. release, each contributing artist chose his favourite sleeve from sigga’s 100 hand-mades to become the official sleeve for this record store day u.k. release.
XL Recordings are reproducing 1000 of each especially for Record Store Day
