*The band had closed their set with tracks 2 and 3 from this single during their spring 2003 tour, calling the two songs "Smáskífa" (single) on their setlist.
*Track 2 was originally meant to be a remix of Vaka but it turned out into a different song altogether, although some remnants of Vaka's melody can still be heard.
*Track 3 features a solo on piano by drummer
Orri Páll Dýrason.
*Track 4 is the music looped before and after Sigur Rós' live shows.
*The DVD accompanying the 5" CD contains the first three music videos the band has made:
Svefn-g-englar, Viðrar vel til loftárásaand Vaka. The menu screen has a video which the band shot of some birds on a wire, with track 4 from the single playing.
*The single was also released as a 10" limited vinyl gatefold sleeve with an artwork stencil.
*This single was also released as a 3" limited mini-cd pressing in europe. The sticker on the front says it features a new 12 minute track though there are 4 seperate tracks on the disc.
Floria Sigismondi, the music video shows a post-apocalyptic world in which children, attending school, get ready to go outside and play. The children, after having their ears and mouths inspected by the faculty, putting on many layers of clothes as well as ominous gas-masks, exit the school building and emerge to a yard covered in black ash, which falls from the sky like snow. The children play in the ash, throwing it at one another and making snowmen out of it as well as roughhousing with each other, causing one of the kids to lose her gas mask. Her classmates gather around her as she falls to the ground and eventually closes her eyes. The video won the "Best Video" award at the 2003 MTV Europe Music Awardsin Edinburgh, Scotland.
