Solstafir Posts Title Track Off New Album "Ótta"

The devastatingly awesome Icelandic rock heathens in Solstafir will release their forthcoming new album, titled "Ótta," on September 2nd in North America (August 29th worldwide).

The album's title track is streaming now below, courtesy of Stereogum.com. "Ótta" will include eight new tracks and is available for pre-order at the Season of Mist E-shop.

Regarding the new album, Solstafir frontman Aðalbjörn Tryggvason comments: "This album sums together alot of things we've been wanting to do for years but never did. We finally brought in a string section, and we did our very own full blown melancholic Tiny Dancer piano ballad."

2. Ótta
3. Rismál
4. Dagmál
5. Miðdegi
6. Nón
7. Miðaftann
