Burial: New Single Details

New single for release on 17th December

Hyperdub's elusive man of mystery Burial, whose last release was the excellent Kindred EP earlier this year, is set to release a new single on 17th December. Featuring two tracks, revealed simply as 'One' and 'Two' at this point, it's over 25 minutes long, continuing in the same long-playing vein as Kindred. It's up for pre-order now at Boomkat, and will be released both as a vinyl 12" and a CD.

Rumblings in the Hyperdub camp - this new single, plus Kode9's recent Burial DJ sets being packed full of new material - hint that we could be in for a new Burial LP, a long-awaited follow-up to 2007's Untrue, sooner than we expect. No doubt it'll be announced in a similarly low-key and surprising fashion, if and when such a beast does emerge. Watch this space.

When Kindred was released we ran an extensive review/feature covering both that single and his previous work. Click here to read the feature.
