Sigur Ros have released some details and a preview of their first-ever live film and double live album.

The film and album, entitled Inni, is set for North American release on November 15th on XL Recordings. The first preview from the release is the free download of the song "Festival" which you can grab here.

Upon release on November 15th, Inni will be available in a plethora of formats: *Double CD + DVD (includes 4 extra songs not featured on the live album) *Double CD + Blu Ray (includes 4 extra songs not featured on the live album) *Clear 150 gram vinyl (3 LPs) *Digital edition *Deluxe edition.

Recorded and shot over two nights at London's Alexandra Palace at the close of the 2008 world tour around their fifth full length album, Meπ suπ ν eyrum viπ spilum endalaust, Inni sees the band at the peak of their powers, captured on film for the first time as a core four-piece since they were joined by string section amiina at the start of the century. Directed by Vincent Morisset (Arcade Fire's Miroir Noir), with film manipulations by Godspeed You! Black Emperor visual collaborator Karl Lemieux, Inni is Sigur Rσs' second live film following 2007's hugely-celebrated tour documentary Heima. Whereas that film positioned the enigmatic group in the context of their Icelandic homeland, providing geographical, social and historical perspectives on their otherworldly music, Inni focuses purely on the band's performance, and stands as a stark counterpoint to Heima's kaleidoscopic richness. Filmed in a manner that invites both intimacy and claustrophobia, Inni cocoons the viewer in a one-on-one relationship with the band, eschewing the audience for closeness, depicting how it feels for both band and fan to experience Sigur Rσs live.

The live album Inni – a first for the band – is comprised of the full set from Alexandra Palace, played in order with just one omission, and clocks in at one-and-three-quarter hours. Recorded by Sigur Rσs' in-house studio engineer Birgir Jσn Birgisson, Inni's live audio recording is far and away the best way of replicating the full-force effect of standing in front of one of the world's most extraordinary bands for an evening.
