Five copies of a new Burial 12" were sold in Toronto this weekend, though it was not intended for sale. As Pitchfork reports, Sonic Boom Records in the Canadian city received shipment from U.K. label Hyperdub of a box marked simply “artist/title.” Staff at the store mistakenly believed the records to be a Black Friday secret listing and had no idea they were not supposed to be selling the item. Blair Whatmore, a buyer at the shop, told Pitchfork that Hyperdub contacted the store to correct the error.

A listing for the record 12", which features two new songs titled "Young Death" and "Nightmarket", is now up on Discogs. Earlier this year Burial released "Sweetz" in collaboration with Zomby. This new 12" would mark his first solo release since 2013.

The FADER has contacted Hyperdub for more information on the release.

Update November 28, 8:06 a.m. : "Young Death" and "Nightmarket" are streaming here.
