popplagið.com  jónsi (Jón Þór Birgisson)  Go Do CD SINGLE PROMO - USA 2010

From the debut solo album "go"

 XL RECORDINGS - XL CD SINGLE PROMO
.

 

Jónsi has spent more than a decade writing epic compositions with Sigur Rós, creating some of the finest, most acclaimed albums of the last ten years. The choice to make an album of solo recordings came together as a solution to a backlog of songs Jónsi had written that didn't seem to fit within Sigur Rós context. "Go" is a diffrent beast entirely. Exstatic, dramatic and alive, it features Jónsi's signature vocals throughout, with the majority of the songs sung in English. "Go" is also one of the most joyous collections of songs you're ever likely to hear. It's an album that sounds like an artist entirely out of his own, doing exactly as he pleases, and from the creator of some of the last decade's most inventive, evocative music, we would expect nothing less. XL CD SINGLE

 

 

"Go" CD tracklist:

Go Do - 3:41

 

"Go do"

Go sing too loud
Make you voice break Sing it out

Go scream do shout
Make an earthquake

You wish fire would die and turn colder
You wish young eye could see you grow older
We should always know that we can do anything

Go drum do proud
Make your hands ache Play it out

Go march through crowds
Make your day break

You wish silence released noisy drummers
You wish white noise surrendered to summer
We should always know that we can do everything

Go do
You'll know how to
Just let yourself fall into landslide

Go do
You'll know how to
Just let yourself give into the flood tide
Go do

Tie strings to clouds
Make your own lake
Let it flow

Throw seeds to sprout
Make your own break
Let them grow

Let them grow
Endless summers
Let them grow
Go through it drummers

You wish surprise would never has don't wonders
You wish sunrise would never fall under

We should always know that we can do anything
Go do
