Burial Announces Release of the 'Antidawn' EP in January 2022
Burial, one of our generation's most enigmatic yet revered musicians, just gave us something to look forward to in 2022. The UK beatmaker will be dropping his new 5-track Antidawn EP via independent London-based record label Hyperdub on January 6, with a vinyl and CD release shortly after on January 28th.
Along with the announcement, Hyperdub elaborated on the vision of the project on Twitter. you can read the full announcement below.
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 wintertime city, and something beckoning you to follow it into the night.
The result is both comforting and disturbing, producing a quiet and uncanny glow against the cold.
Sometimes as it enters 'a bad place', it takes your breath away. And time just stops.
News of new music from this groundbreaking artist is always cause for excitement amongst his massively diverse fanbase. The last time the producer dropped music was earlier this year with his 4-track Shock Power of Love EP in April.
People were also surprised to see a new photo of Burial, a rarity for the lowkey artist and people seem to be just as excited about this picture as they are about the music.
You can pre-order or pre-save the EP here. Clear your calendars on January 6 because, as it is when listening to Burial, you're bound to have an emotional experience.
