Jónsi Go on LP + Download

Solo Debut from Sigur Rós Guitarist/Vocalist

Jónsi has spent over two decades writing epic compositions with Sigur Rós, creating some of the finest, most acclaimed albums of their era in the process. The choice to make an album of solo recordings came together as a solution to a backlog of songs Jónsi had written that didn't seem to fit within the Sigur Rós context. 2010's Go is a different beast entirely. Ecstatic, dramatic and alive, it features Jónsi's signature vocals throughout, with the majority of the songs sung in English.

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. Chief among these is Nico Muhly, the Philip Glass protégé who is renowned for his work with Björk, Antony & The Johnsons, Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Grizzly Bear.

Also in the mix is the percussive genius of Samuli Kosminen, whose original drumming powers many of the songs along so you have a sonic landscape that bears little relation to anything else around today, yet explodes from the speakers with sheer happiness and wonder, wide-eyed and eager to be heard. The album was recorded in Iceland and Connecticut, was co-produced by Jónsi, Alex Somers and Peter Katis (The National, Interpol) and was mixed by Tom Elmhirst in London.
