Having announced the release details of his album 'Go' due Apr. 5 (Apr. 6 in America), Jonsi is sticking to the new proven format of releasing a limited-edition box set alongside a digital edition. Spinner has previously reported that the album will include contributions from artists including Grizzly Bear and New York composer Nico Muhly.
The cloth-bound, velvet-lined limited edition box will include a download link, a CD, a full length DVD of Jonsi performing an acoustic set of the album filmed by Dean Deblois (director of the Sigur Ros documentary 'Heima'), and Nico Muhly joins Jonsi in a downloadable performance in east London's Bethnal Green. The package will be topped off with "more surprise goodies," and is available for pre-order for £25/$35 + shipping.
Jonsi last hit the Spinner headlines last week, when he proclaimed that British TV had "raped" the music of Sigur Ros.
A preview of the film 'Go Quiet' is up for your viewing pleasure now. Director Dean Deblois elaborates: "Jonsi awakens to a trashed house ... He avoids cleaning up and instead procrastinates by playing songs that reflect the night before." A normal Sunday, then.
