It’s long been known that Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Burial and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke have been close friends and now they are sealing it with a collaborative limited 12″ release.
Last time Four Tet and Burial collaborated on the 12″ single “Moth”/”Wolf Cub” it was an undeniable success and the singles sold out in no time. With the addition of Thom Yorke to the mix we hope things can only get better, but things are definitely selling out faster.
The press release says:
This limited surprise-release is in keeping with all things Thom Yorke: always searching for new ways to sound and to catch his audience unawares. Thom Yorke has been a champion of the cutting edge electronica and dubstep scenes from the start and here we see the fruits of three of the most important minds on the contemporary music scene locked together in electronic matrimony. Be quick on this one…”
The tracks are called “Ego” and “Mirror.” The latter features Yorke.
The tracks will premier tonight in Kieran Hebden’s appearance on Rinse FM at 11pm tonight.
