Sigur Rós have shared a new song titled ‘Stendur æva’, taken from their upcoming album Odin’s Raven Magic. Recorded with a full choir and symphony orchestra, the new track arrives with an accompanying music video filmed in Paris in September of 2004. Watch it below.
Odin’s Raven Magic, which originally premiered at the Reykjavik Arts Festival in 2002, is set for release on December 4 via Krunk/Warner Classics. The orchestral album was made in collaboration with Maria Huld Markan Sigfúsdóttir, Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, and Steindór Andersen, and was inspired by one particular chapter of Iceland’s Medieval literary canon known as the Edda, entitled Hrafnagaldur Óðins, or Odin’s Raven Magic. The 8-track LP includes the previously released single ‘Dvergmál’.
