[ ADA / Warner / LP ]
Release Date: Friday 2 October 2020
Sigur Rós front man Jón Þór "Jónsi" Birgisson released his debut album 'Go' in 2010. Jónsi initially though he would be making a low-key, acoustic album until, as he says, "somewhere along the line, it just sort of exploded."
That explosion resulted in sheer aural fireworks. Not a straight ahead pop record, nor rock, folk, ambient or electronic, it encompasses all of these to create an expansive musical palette that's been brought to life by Jónsi alongside a number of free-spirited collaborators including the Philip Glass protégé Nico Muhly and the percussive genius of Samuli Kosminen.
Met with great critical acclaim, Go will be repressed on limited transparent red vinyl.
