Jónsi Birgisson, multidisciplinary artist and frontman of Sigur Rós, proudly announces ‘Shiver’, his first solo album in a decade, out 2nd October 2020 on Krunk. The new album features acclaimed vocalists Elizabeth Fraser (of the Cocteau Twins) and Robyn, as well as production by PC Music founder A.G. Cook.

Jónsi has made a career on sweeping music that plumbed the depths of the human experience and our connection to the natural world. With his multi-million selling, award-winning band Sigur Rós, he transmuted the rugged terrain of Iceland into music that sounds pure, organic and untouched by the modern world, even as it exists comfortably within it. A. G. Cook’s production exists at the opposite end of the spectrum: synthetic, sometimes abrasive, and often on the cutting edge of experimentalism. On paper, their collaboration is surprising, but Shiver is a beautiful record that pushes Jónsi’s otherworldly voice into startling new territories.
