Sigur Rós. Hvarf-Heim (2007)

Hvarf-Heim is a compilation album by Sigur Rós released on November 5, 2007. It is comprised of two discs: Hvarf contains studio versions of previously unreleased songs (with the exception of "Hafsól", which was released as the b-side of Hoppípolla in 2005), while Heim contains live acoustic versions of songs already released.

The cover images are pinhole polaroid photographs. The Hvarf cover is a handheld image of the microphone stands just before the band arrived to play in the gentle rain. The Heim cover is a 7-minute exposure of the stage at Gamla Borg where Sigur Rós performed an acoustic set for friends and family in April 2007.

The album was released on November 5 in Europe and was released on November 6 in North America. Prior to this release a limited 7" vinyl single of Hljómalind was released on 29 October. The album debut at #23 in UK, #7 on the US independent chart and #83 in Spain selling over 50.000 copies in first week worldwide.
