Sigur Rós are today allowing you to have the first exclusive listen to their new record, Valtari.

For today only, 7pm is dubbed 'Valtari Hour' - an hour in which "every time zone around the globe" will be able to stream the album online at Sigur Rós' website, as well as on selected radio stations and record stores.

Details of the partners involved will be rolling out across the day (we're one of them!) on the Sigur Rós website too, and fans are encouraged to participate by using the #valtarihour hashtag across their social media platforms.

Words and images will then be correlated across a special page on the website for the world to see.

If you wanna listen to a couple of the tracks prior to the stream, you can catch 'Ekki Múkk' here, and 'Varúð' here.
