    Sigur Ros Prank Coldplay On April Fools Day

    sigurros.jpgSigur Ros fooled many of their fans into thinking singer/guitarist Jon Thor "Jonsi" Birgisson and keyboardist Kjartan "Kjarri" Sveinsson were working on the new Coldplay album with an April Fool's message posted on their website today (Wednesday).


    "we are now happy to announce that kjartan (keyboards) will be writing and arranging strings for 4 songs on coldplay’s as-yet-untitled follow up album to 2008's acclaimed 'viva la vida'," the message reads.


    "kjartan has already completed most of the arrangements, which are set to be recorded in late spring. in addition to kjartan’s contribution, jonsi will join chris martin on vocals on one of the album's songs. "we were fortunate enough to be allowed to visit coldplay's rehearsal space while jonsi and chris were rehearsing their collaboration, which promises to be nothing short of amazing. we filmed a short video from the session, which is viewable on youtube



    If you click the link, you'll soon find out it's not actually a video of the session. Duh.

    Sigur Ros' most recent release is last year's Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust. They shot this performance of "Vid Spilum Endalaust" for La Blogotheque's The Take-Away Shows earlier this month.
