New record was sold “accidentally” on Black Friday
A new Burial record has surfaced online, after it was “accidentally” sold on Black Friday. The 12″ is called ‘Young Death’ and has appeared on music marketplace Discogs. Stream below.
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’.
According to Pitchfork, ‘Young Death’ was listed online after copies of the record were available for sale yesterday (Black Friday) at the Toronto shop Sonic Boom Records.
The Discogs listing states that it features two new songs: ‘Young Death’ and ‘Nightmarket’. They have now been uploaded to Burial’s Bandcamp. Stream below.
Last year, Burial released ‘Temple Sleeper’, which was the London producer’s first new release since the high quality version of previously unreleased ‘Lambeth’ came out at the end of 2014.
‘Lambeth’ dated back to 2009, but appeared on the latest compilation from electronic label Hyperdub. The London imprint celebrated their 10th anniversary by issuing a series of compilation releases in 2014. The last in this series, ‘Hyperdub 10.4’, was released in November 2014. A radio rip of ‘Lambeth’ had circulated online for five years but this was be the first time the track had seen an official release.
Burial’s last release prior to that 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’.
