Burial, the highly influential post-dubstep producer, will release a new EP called Antidawn next month. The project is coming out via Burial's longtime label Hyperdub on January 6 with a physical release due on January 28.


Here's how Hyperdub described Antidawn in an admittedly very enticing press release:


Antidawn reduces Burial’s music to just the vapors.

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.

This year, Burial shared the singles "Chemz / Dolphinz" and "Dark Gethsemane." His compilation Tunes 2011–2019 was released in 2019 and was one of our favorite albums of the year.
