ULVER Just Surprise Released Its New EP Sic Transit Gloria Mundi
Ulver dropped a new song called "Echo Chamber (Room Of Tears)" on November 7 and promised a new EP called Sic Transit Gloria Mundi to be out sooner or later. Apparently "sometime soon" to Ulver means "really, really soon," as the band has just digitally released the three-song EP. Here's what Ulver had to say about the release.
The sad remains from our Caesarean banquet. Two songs we kind of left on the drawing board but resumed work on this summer. Additionally, a cover of a childhood favourite – one we actually started some twelve–thirteen years ago – from the time we first started thinking about making “pop” music. This EP was finalized in our new studio in the old town of Oslo in September, and sent off to Youth's (Martin Glover and Michael Rendall) in London in October, for imperial sound quality. Mastered this week by The Bricoleur.
Cover shows Francis Bacon's Study After Velásquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X (1953), used with kind permission of Des Moines Art Center. Design by Paschalis Zervas, +wolframgrafik.
