Tonight in Seattle, Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi and visual artist and musician Alex Somers will kick-off their 10th anniversary tour for their debut collaboration Riceboy Sleeps. In an unexpected surprise, they've released Lost and Found, what they're calling a "sibling album", which you can stream below.

In a press statement, Somers elabortes:

“It falls somewhere between what was, what is, and what will be. Tape experiments, modular synth processing, and acoustic soundscapes drift in and out of focus. Sound friends that you may have heard or seen before appear; familiar, but different. The album has no linear relationship to Riceboy Sleeps.... It treats Riceboy Sleeps as a place to begin and finds moments from that album to open up to new moments that at times give glimpses of places within Riceboy Sleeps and at other times put you somewhere entirely new."

Riceboy Sleeps has just been remastered for what the duo call "the definitive pressing of the record." Expanded from a double album to a triple, the anniversary edition includes the 30-minute All Animals EP that originally came packaged with the CD version. It's all pressed on 140-gram vinyl and packaged in a gatefold sleeve with rounded corners.

11 Seattle, WA – Paramount Theatre
14 San Francisco – Golden Gate Theatre
15 Los Angeles, CA – Orpheum Theatre

23 Montreal, Quebec – Théâtre Maisonneuve
