Ulver And Sunn O))) Streaming Collaborative Album "Terrestrials"

Finally available to the public this week is "Terrestrials," the collaborative work created by the members of Sunn O))) and Ulver on an improvisational nocturnal whim.

As Southern Lord launches "Terrestrials" this week -- the album officially available to North American audiences tomorrow, Tuesday, February 4th -- you can hear the entire release at Pitchfork.com. The following press release was also issued:

"Following their 200th gig, playing before 2000 people at the Øya Festival in Oslo, Norway, August 10th, 2008, Sunn O))) ended up in Ulver's studio, Crystal Canyon, and over the course of the night they created three live pieces which faded out at dawn as the northern sunlight began creeping into the space.

"Featuring the shared efforts of Stephen O'Malley, Greg Anderson, Daniel O'Sullivan, Kristoffer Rygg, Jørn H. Sværen and Tore Ylwizaker, with ghost appearances by Ole-Henrik Moe and Kari Rønnekleiv (viola/violin), Stig Espen Hundsnes (trumpet) and Tomas Pettersen (drums), Terrestrials was produced by Stephen O'Malley and Kristoffer Rygg, mixed by Anders Møller at Crystal Canyon during February and March 2013, and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone, London.

"Art direction was handled by Stephen O'Malley, featuring a portrait of our sun, captured in the wavelength of hydrogen alpha light -- 656.3 nanometers in the deep red -- on June 10, 2012 by Alan Friedman."
