“We are excited to announce the latest release from Kieran Hebden’s brilliant TEXT RECORDS…“A two track collaborative twelve inch from Burial + Four Tet + Thom Yorke…“A-side is titled ‘EGO’, AA-side titled ‘MIRROR’. Plain black house bag and black label.
Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Four Tet, and dubstep enigma Burial have teamed up for a 12? on Four Tet’s Text record label. A press release notes that both tracks will air tonight, 11:00 p.m. GMT, on UK radio station Rinse FM during Four Tet’s session with UK knob-twiddler Floating Points.
Between them Thom Yorke, Burial andFour Tet are responsible for some of the most inventive, spell binding and emotionally involving music Britain has produced over the past decade. Now the three of them have confirmed details of a potentially fantastic 12 inch.
It is not yet known to what extent each will be involved, although the cast list alone makes this big news. Of course, Four Tet and Burial have worked together before. The pair released a split 12 inch on Text, which has gone on to become a collector’s item. Kept to a limited edition, the two producers cut a pair of tracks which veered between dubstep, garage and IDM.
Thom Yorke is the odd one out, having been remixed by both producers yet never working directly with them. Fresh from the artistic success of ‘The King Of Limbs’ the new 12 inch is the latest blast of material the songwriter has been involved in. Meawhile, Four Tet has been in the mood for collaboration recently. Kiren Hebden is working on another 12 inch with Caribou producer Dan Snaith, the results of which are set to drop later this Spring.
