Iceland's Sigur Rós have revealed plans to reissue their Ágætis byrjun album 20 years on, complete with demos, rarities, and live recordings.
Ágætis byrjun, originally released on 12 June 1999, was their second, and breakthrough album for the Icelandic trio, and is being repackaged for a 20th anniversary release as a deluxe boxset.
The boxset will include seven vinyl, and will feature early recordings and demos of songs on the original record, unreleased recordings, and a live recording of their Icelandic Opera House show on 12 June, 1999. Check out a recording of "Flugufrelsarinn" below.
The vinyl boxset will be packaged in a linen box, with the first 1999 numbered. There will also be an 84-page, cloth-bound book with archived notes and handwritten string arrangements, as well as forgotten artwork ideas.
