Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust is the fifth full-length studio album by the Icelandic band Sigur Rós, released on June 23, 2008.
It was produced by Flood (U2, PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails) and recorded, variously, in New York, London, Reykjavik, and Havana.
All the lyrics for the album were originally intended to be in English, but in the end the band decided that Icelandic felt more natural to them.
Some lyrics were translated back into Icelandic, while some songs got completely new texts. It is the band's first album to feature a track sung in English ("All Alright").
The album's cover features a photograph by Ryan McGinley, entitled "Highway".
Originally the album artwork was going to be done by Olafur Eliasson; it would have been the first time the band had passed album artwork to an external artist. In the end they did not like the proposed design and created the cover art themselves using the photograph.
