Sigur Rós To Appear On An Upcoming Episode Of The Simpsons—May 19th

Sigur Rós on The Simpsonsis pretty sweet. The band scored much of the episode too. In addition to the score, the episode will feature a new Sigur Rós track as well as their version of the Simpsons theme song. Fun fact: the band has written and performed more original music for The Simpsons than any other outside band in the show's history. Simpsons creator Matt Groening said, "I’m a longtime fan of Sigur Rós, and we’re honored to bring their Icelandic, ambient moods to our goofy cartoon show."

The episode, titled The Saga of Carl, finds Homer, Moe, Lenny and Carl purchasing a winning lottery ticket. After Carl snags the ticket and flees to his home country of Iceland, the guys head there in hot pursuit. The band’s music scores Homer’s visit to Iceland...

Here's "Ísjaki" from the forthcoming Sigur Rós album Kveikur, which is due for release June 17 on XL Recordings.
