SÓLSTAFIR are now revealing the first magical song of their forthcoming sixth full-length. The new masterpiece of the enigmatic Icelandic rockers is entitled ‘Berdreyminn’, which means a “dreamer of forthcoming events” and will be out in stores on May 26th.
SÓLSTAFIR comment: “Our first premiere song ‘Ísafold’ came very spontaneously to light. It felt like the spirit of THIN LIZZY paid us a visit that day. Adding a classic Phil Rudd beat to that seemed the only right thing to do. This is not the most typical SÓLSTAFIR track but in some odd way it could be taken to represent this album. For such a short song, it offers many different sonic landscapes. And although we are not re-inventing the wheel and you will find many references to ‘classics’ as tributes, I find it quite different from anything that we have done before. That is the way, I like it and to me ‘Ísafold’ is already an all-time favourite among all our tracks.”
SÓLSTAFIR have previously released the cover art by Adam Burke and track-list of ‘Berdreyminn’, which can both be viewed below.
