After much speculating that Burial might have been anyone from Norman Cook to Aphex to Kode 9 to Albert Speer, the mystery man has finally confirmed his identity on his mySpace page.

And, to no surprise whatsoever, he turns out to be a pleasant seeming fellow called Will Bevan. Quite a hottie, as it happens. Here's his statement, for what it's worth:

"hi

for a while theres been some talk about who i am , but its not a big deal i wanted to be unknown because i just want it to be all about the tunes. over the last year the unknown thing become an issue so im not into it any more. im a lowkey person and i just want to make some tunes, nothing else. my names will bevan, im from south london, im keeping my head down and just going to finish my next album, theres going to be a 12" maybe in the next few weeks too with 4 tunes. hope u like it, i'll try put a tune up later
