Ulver are releasing an album featuring 16 1960's songs on May 7th, it appears. I've not seen any mention from K-Scope, but several websites, including are in line with this release date.

The following was taken from the Roadburn Festival's website and announces an EP that appears to feature two of the songs from that album.

To commemorate" rel="nofollow - Ulver ‘s special performance at this year’s festival, we’re extremely proud to announce the release of the band’s Roadburn EP on our very own label on Thursday, April 12.

Ulver‘s Roadburn EP includes I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night), a cover of The Electric Prunes, originally recorded in 1967. Some of you might have heard Ulver‘s hypnotic version before, as it was streamed online in 2009.

The B side sees Ulver covering 13th Floor Elevators‘ classic track Reverberation (Doubt), written by Tommy Hall, Stacy Sutherland and Roky Erikson in 1966. Ulver‘s take features special guests including VirusCzral on bass.

Ulver‘s musical career is a sonic kaleidoscopic epic. Lo-fi black metal beginnings turned into acoustic outsider-folk and from there mutated and continued to evolve from electronic and ambient forms, symphonic traditions, soundtracks for films, post and prog-rock and on to their current sound, which basically defies any further attempts at labeling. Prog / electronic / experimental / psychedelia / art rock, anyone?

They are without question unique, multifaceted and one of the most talented bands active today and Roadburn is colossally chuffed to release this Roadburn EP (limited to 500 copies) in tandem with our 2012 festival. Ulver‘s “1967 performance” promises to be a wild musical ride; we can hardly wait!

They had "I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)" on their MySpace page a while ago, and it was an enjoyable listen. "February MMX" and it have a common thread, looking back on it.
