Burial is releasing a new five-track EP through Hyperdub.

Titled Antidawn, it will first be released digitally by Hyperdub on January 6, with a CD and vinyl release arriving on January 28. No music has yet been made publicly available from the record, which follows on from a split 12-inch EP with Blackdown on Keysound, released earlier this year, and the Hyperdub-released Chemz / Dolphinz. The new record is available for pre-order on Bandcamp here.

A press release accompanying the announcement of the new EP reads: "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."

Hyperdub will release Antidawn on January 6, 2022.
