May 15, 2012 at 2:47pm

Listen up! Sigur Rós will be streaming their new album 'Valtari' from their website on Thursday May 17th.

This release, which is out on May 28th, will be playing via a listening platform on the site from 7pm in all time zones.
 
'Valtari' is the first new recording from the band since their 2008 release 'Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust'.
 
According to bassist Georg Hólm: "I really can’t remember why we started this record, I no longer know what we were trying to do back then. I do know session after session went pear-shaped, we lost focus and almost gave up...did give up for a while. but then something happened and form started to emerge, and now I can honestly say that it’s the only sigur rós record I have listened to for pleasure in my own house after we’ve finished it."
 
So clear your diaries and settle in for Valtari Hour!
