It's been two years since Iceland's dreamscape sound artists Sigur Ros scrapped the band's sixth album and went on indefinite hiatus. But the group is back now with plans for a new record this year. Hear a sneak preview of the new music on this week's All Songs Considered, plus a collaboration between Danger Mouse and Norah Jones.

Also on the show: Former Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman returns with a solo album under the name Father John Misty; We spin new music from our favorite artist from this year's South by Southwest festival, Patrick Watson, and one of our most surprising discoveries, Gashcat; and NPR Music's most recent member, Saidah Bount, joins us to share one of her favorite new discoveries.
