Burial drops surprise new single Chemz

Burial New EP

It’s lifted from an upcoming two-track project scheduled for release in 2021.

Burial has shared a surprise new single just in time for Christmas. It’s titled Chemz and is the first of two tracks from a new EP scheduled for release next year. The second track on the project is called Dolphinz and will be released in April when the physical EP lands.

Word of the new release began to surface yesterday (20 December), with online forums and social media users catching wind of the new 12-minute song prior to its release today (21 December).

Fans of the elusive producer will be aware of his penchant for Christmas releases. He previously dropped Truant / Rough Sleeper in December 2012, the Rival Dealer EP in December 2013 and Tunes 2011 to 2019 in December 2019.

The new song follows his recent collaborative efforts with Thom Yorke and Four Tet, with the trio teaming up on tracks His Rope and Her Revolution. Listen to Chemz below.
