As reported by The Reykjavik Grapevine, former FatCat band, Sigur Rós, are to compose a special piece of music for an episode of The Simpsons, in which recurring character, Carl Carlson, explores his Icelandic heritage. The possibility of a Sigur Rós version of the famous Danny Elfman-composed Simpsons theme tune has also been mooted.

The episode is scheduled to air on the 19th of May.
