After making a triumphant return with a revamped live set and a brand new song titled “Óveður,” Sigur Rós have revealed their progressive project Route One. Streaming right now around the world on Iceland’s Ruv 2 and YouTube, the 24-hour “slow TV” live broadcast is a twilight trip around Route 1, an extended stretch of road in Iceland. Based around “Óveður,” the journey is soundtracked in real time through the “generative music software” Bronze. Viewers will be shown many of the country’s stunning natural landmarks. Frontman Jónsi Birgisson reveals:

Immerse yourself in the project below.
