Valtari (Roller) is the sixth studio album by Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós, released on 23 May 2012 by Parlophone. The album was commercially successful going at number eight in the UK Albums Chart, seven in the Billboard 200 and number one in Iceland. 

Bassist Georg Hólm described the album as having "more electronic stuff than before" but not being "a dance album", and the band described the album as "an avalanche in slow motion." The album opening track "Ég anda" has been described to have "reverb-heavy guitars chiming quietly before Jónsi’s distinctive falsetto floats in over what sounds like an army of music boxes". "Dauðalogn" and "Varðeldur" were written as far back as 2009, with "Varðeldur" being a different version of the song "Lúppulagið" from Inni. The second track "Ekki múkk" was referred to as "an unhurried assembly of vinyl crackle and fragile guitar." The title of the album means "Roller" in English, which Jónsi said they chose because they "just liked that word", saying that "it kind of fits with the album because it’s big and slow and rolls over you slowly." He said that it was the working title of one songs, but was then changed as the title for a different song which now is the seventh track on the album. The track "Valtari" has been described as "a layered, gorgeous nothing, lush with nuanced drift and harmonic sweetness." "Fjögur píanó" was made up of different parts of old material that wasn't used, and they put it on loop, hence "Four Pianos"
