Burial has released a new EP, ‘ANTIDAWN’, via Hyperdub.
The five-track, 40-minute EP is the UK producer’s first release for the label since December 2020’s two-tracker ‘Chemz / Dolphinz’. You can listen to it below.
The EP’s accompanying text says: “‘Antidawn’ reduces Burial’s music to just the vapours. The record explores an interzone between dislocated, patchwork songwriting and eerie, open-world, game space ambience.
“In the resulting no man’s land, lyrics take precedence over song, lonely phrases colour the haze, a stark and fragmented structure makes time slow down. ‘Antidawn’ seems to tell a story of a wintertime city, and something beckoning you to follow it into the night.”
A vinyl and CD release of the EP will be available from 28th January. Pre-order it via Bandcamp.
This is Burial’s first record since the Keysound-released split EP with Blackdown, ‘Shock Power Of Love’, which came out in April.
