Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi penned the score for Cameron Crowe’s upcoming film We Bought A Zoo, and while the outlet for his new songs may surprise you, the music itself is subtle, tender, and orchestral in a way that’s pure Jónsi.

“Ævin Endar,” a new track we can stream from the soundtrack, is hypnotically beautiful, mesmerizing and simple. Subtle piano chords, ambient background strings, Jónsi’s own lullaby voice – everything builds up into a stunningly gorgeous moment of smiling-through-your-tears catharsis. Listen!
