Burial is releasing a new EP in January

Words: Dylan Murphy

Antidawn drops early 2022. Bonus points for the brand new photo of Burial.

Early January, Burial is releasing a new five track EP named Antidawn. Landing via Hyperdub on January 6, the vinyl and CD will be available from January 28.

In a statement, Hyperdub described the album saying:

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. 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.

It comes after he released ‘Dolphinz‘ and his split EP Shock Power of Love, with Blackdown. See the tracklist for Antidawn below:

01. STRANGE NEIGHBOURHOOD
02. ANTIDAWN
03. SHADOW PARADISE
04. NEW LOVE
05. UPSTAIRS FLAT
