Sigur Rós Singer Jónsi Announces Debut Album as Dark Morph
Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi has revealed a new project called Dark Morph. Including Swedish composer Carl Michael von Hausswolff, the duo will release their self-titled debut album on May 10 via Krunk/The Vinyl Factory.

For a taste of the fast-approaching new album, you can hear its "BEKA YALO" below.

In a statement, here's what von Hausswolff had to say about Dark Morph:

While we were on the boat I started to take the recordings, manipulate them and mutate them into drones or other types of musical functions — so we could use the sounds as instruments for building compositions. We decided, "Let's try not to have them sounding too much like real sounds, let's turn them into something else." When I had done some drones, some long tones out of a bird or something, I gave it to Jónsi and he started to peel off certain types of melodious things, and then play it to me. And then we started to just throw the ball back and forth.

As previously reported, Jónsi & Alex Somers will be taking their Riceboy Sleeps album on an anniversary tour this fall. You can see all those dates here.
