Hyperdub announce new EP from Burial, ‘Antidawn’
Hyperdub have announced ‘Antidawn’, the newest EP from Burial.
Due for digital release on Thursday 6th January 2022, and on CD and LP on Friday 28th January 2022, the stripped-back EP marks another instalment in the UK-based producer’s series of releases for his regular home of Hyperdub.
A press release reads: “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.”
Since his eponymous debut album in 2006, which was met with critical acclaim, he’s released the inimitable ‘Untrue’ and several long-form EPs, predominantly through his longstanding label partner Hyperdub.
