Burial 'Street Halo' on Hyperdub

Burial - Street Halo by ListenBeforeYouBuy

I thought the news that Burial had collaborated with Thom Yorke and Four Tet on the marvellous Ego was the most exciting music news so far this year (and i'm still buzzing about it), but then yesterday it was announced that Burial is finally releasing solo music again, four years after his beautiful second album Untrue came out.

The three-track 12″ EP will be released on HyperDub on May 28th, with the A-side 'Street Halo' being backed by two B-sides 'NYC' and 'Stolen Dog'. Props to the great music blog Listen Before You Buy, who were quick off the bat getting the clips up for two of the three tunes, ripped from Benji B's 1xtra show.
