JÃ³nsi‘s new album is going full steam ahead!
Go, his first solo endeavor, will be released on April 5 across the world. Above is the album’s cover art which, according to the singer’s website e-mail, was conceptualized by his sisters Inga and Lilja. Aww.
At the same time, the Sigur RÃ³s singer is preparing his first tour of North America. Judging by the e-mail, he’s going Gaga in terms of set design: “We wanted you to know we are going for broke on this and it ain’t in any way going to be JÃ³nsi alone on stage with an acoustic guitar, no sirree.” Then again, everyone’s broke in Iceland.
