Yesterday Iceland's Sigur Rós shared a mysterious new teaser trailer that was streaming in a loop and announced that something was happening at 5 PM EST. Then that something was revealed to be a live 24 event the band dubbed a "Slow TV" broadcast that aired via Iceland's nationwide TV channel RÚV 2 and streamed on YouTube. Entitled Route One, it featured a drive once around Iceland's coastal ring road, all 1332km of it, with a soundtrack that features the band's new song "Óveður." Now "Óveður" has a video, which you can watch below.

Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund shot the clip in the small town of Grindavík, which is on the Reykjanes peninsular. It features a crazy looking woman (played by Icelandic choreographer Erna Ómarsdóttir) and her dog. The band shows up briefly. "Óveður" was co-produced by the band and Paul Corley and was written and recorded by the band at their Reykjavik studio. The song is available now digitally.
