All alright

Album: Mee sue í eyrum vid spilum endalaust (2008)
  • In this song vocalist Jón "Jónsi" Thor Birgisson's sings for the first time in Sigur Rós' recording career in English.
  • Birgisson told The Sun July 4, 2008 why this was his first song sung in English: "It's something to do with my accent that I've never done it before - it sounds harsh. But I was pleased because it turned out really well. I was very worried about it but you have to let go. I do speak 50/50 Icelandic and English, because my boyfriend is English, as are my manager and people at my record label."
