Burial has announced a new EP called ANTIDAWN. The 5-track project will be released digitally on January 6 via Hyperdub, with a CD and vinyl release to follow on January 28. Check out the EP’s artwork and tracklist below.
“The record explores an interzone between dislocated, patchwork songwriting and eerie, open-world, game space ambience,” according to a press release, which continues:
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. 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.
ANTIDAWN will follow Burial’s 2021 track ‘Dolphinz’ as well as Shock Power of Love, his split EP with London-based producer Blackdown.
