Sigur Rós's Heima on YouTube now

Stop working and watch this instead…

No DVD required: you can now watch the whole of Heima via YouTube.

Sigur Rós’s Heima has become the first full-length music documentary to be made available for viewing on YouTube. Originally released in 2007, this acclaimed 97-minute film cover’s the band’s Icelandic tour from the same year, during which they played both the largest and smallest shows of their career.

March 7 is actually something of a ‘Sigur Rós Day’ on YouTube, in fact, with the video sharing site also featuring some of the best entries to the band’s Minn Heima (My Heima) contest on its front page. Fans were asked to create their own Heima video using a selection of audio and video clips.

You can find out more about Heima on the Sigur Rós website.
