It's a stunning collaboration...

Icelandic artist Jónsi collaborates with Cocteau Twins legend Elizabeth Fraser on new single 'Cannibal'.

The new release is quite a coup for the Sigur Ros lynchpin, given that Elizabeth Fraser has only performed in public a handful of times in the past two decades.

Agreeing to work with the Icelandic artist, the two combine on 'Cannibal' and it's an extraordinary emotional journey.

Taken from new album 'Shiver' - out on October 2nd - it's a beautifully dynamic piece of music, a sign that Elizabeth Fraser can still move the soul in a way few other vocalists can.

“When Sigur Rós was starting, we were always compared to Cocteau Twins and I really didn’t like that,” Jónsi says. “I hated being compared to anybody. Then I got really into Cocteau Twins like two or three years ago. They’re so good. I understood the comparison then.”

Jónsi and Giovanni Ribisi jointly direct the 'Cannibal' video, a simple but striking shoot that places focus on a single dancer.
