Sigur Ros Working On New Album

The experimental Icelandic group posted on their web site that the band has begun to record the follow up to 2005's Takk. Bassist Georg Holm is not sure if the band is going to abandon or at least spin their lush anthemic sound they've used throughout their career.

"We have finished recording a few songs but some more things need to be done. We don’t know exactly where the album is heading yet. We are really just experimenting at this stage."

The band noted that they are also giving old songs that never saw the light of day a chance.

"Some of the songs we recorded are old songs which we had written a while ago, unreleased material which we never got a chance to finish. We decided it was time they were recorded.”

A target for release is not yet settled, but there is hope for a new Sigur Ros album in 2007.
