Norwegian avantgarde outfit Ulver have released a promo video for the cover song "Magic Hollow", originally from Beau Brummels, which is now available for viewing at this location or below. The song is taken from their forthcoming album Childhood's End, featuring classic psychedelic songs re-worked and recorded by the band in late 2011, which is set for release on May 28th via Kscope. The video was directed by Justin Oakey. The album can be pre-ordered here, where you'll also find interviews and other content.

Actually, I think Ulver makes the best covers. Their edition of "Solitude" on Shadows of the Sun is just breathtaking.
EDIT: Just listened to Boettcher's "Astral Cowboy" and Gandalf's "Can You Travel In The Dark Alone?", those two songs + "Today" (which I allready knew) are unbeliveably Ulver-y. This will be a killer album.
