A Burial track dating back to 2009 will be released for the first time on an upcoming compilation from electronic label Hyperdub.
The London imprint are currently celebrating their 10th anniversary, issuing a series of compilation releases this year. The last in this series, ‘Hyperdub 10.4’, will drop on Monday (November 3).
A press release for the compilation had previously listed the track as “untitled”, but now it’s been confirmed to be ‘Lambeth’
As FACT report, label boss Steve Goodman – aka Kode9 – confirmed the news last night (October 29) on Benji B’s Radio 1 show that Burial’s ‘Lambeth’ will feature on the LP.
“It’s Burial beats [but] the music on top of it is maybe different to what people are expecting from the last few releases he’s done, which have been more like montages, cut-up of different tracks,” Goodman said. “This is relatively straightforward.”
A radio rip of ‘Lambeth’ has been circulated online for five years but this will be the first time the track has seen an official release. Hear the radio rip below.
Burial’s last release was 2013’s ‘Rival Dealer’ EP. The producer, real name William Bevan, followed the release of his first two albums, ‘Burial’ in 2006 and ‘Untrue’ in 2007, with a string of EPs, remixes and singles. These included ‘Kindred’, ‘Truant’/’Rough Sleeper’ and Four Tet-collab ‘Nova’.
In 2011, Burial collaborated with Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Four Tet on ‘Ego’. This was followed by other joint-efforts with Massive Attack for the split 12-inch ‘Four Walls’/’Paradise Circus’, as well as a production credit on Jamie Woon’s ‘Mirrorwriting’.
