Sigur Ros singer Jonsi Thor Birgisson has unveiled details of his debut solo album.

Simply titled 'Go', the album is released through Parlophone Records on March 22 and is being billed as markedly different to the 2009 instrumental record with his boyfriend Alex Somers 'The Riceboy Sleeps'.

Every track features vocals and the majority is sung entirely in English in what is described as “a bold stride beyond the career-redefining pop of ‘Hoppipolla’ and even the explosive percussive assault of the last album’s ‘Gobbledigook’.”

The nine-track record was co-produced by Jonsi, Alex Somers and Interpol producer Peter Katis in Reykjavik and Tarquin Studios in Connecticut.

The track-listing is as follows:

Go Do
Animal Arithmetic
Boy Lilikoi
Sinking Friendships
Around Us
Grow Till Tall

Jonsi will follow the release of the record with a world tour.
