Preview: Jonsi – Go Live


Parlophone Records are proud to announce the release of  ’Go Live’, a live DVD/CD double pack which is available exclusively through Jonsi’s website – the direct link to order is http://www.jonsi.com/go_live.

Filmed exclusively at the final dress rehearsal at 3 Mills Studios in London in March 2010 in front of a specially invited audience, ‘Go Live’ includes rampant live renditions of every song from Jonsi’s debut album ‘Go’, as well as never-before- heard versions of all the unreleased material he’s been playing on tour, plus a ton of candid behind-the-scenes footage from the road.

In all there are no fewer than five unreleased songs on ‘Go Live’ – namely ‘Icicile Sleeves’, ‘ Stars in Still Water’, ‘Saint Naive’, ‘New Piano Song’ and ‘ Volume Pedal Song’ – as well as several exclusive musical interludes and definitive live version of ‘ Sticks & Stones’, which Jonsi wrote and preformed for the closing credits of the movie ‘ How to train Your Dragon’.

The whole ‘Go Live’ package comes beautifully wrapped in a hard cover CD-sized book, which includes both discs and a 16-page booklet featuring pictures taken by the band on a tour that’s taken in four continents throughout 2010. Intended as a finely crafted companion to ‘Go’ and ‘ Go Quiet’, ‘ Go Live’ is being pegged at a special low price.

  • CD+DVD £15 (plus postage)
  • Digital Download: £10

Both film and CD run at around 75-minutes running time, with the CD taking in Jonsi’s complete live set in order to play (Recorded mostly at Ancienne Belgique, Belguim on the 29th May 2010), and the film playing more fast and loose for cinematic effect.
