Burial Confirms Identity, to Release New 12-Inch, Working on New LP, Tan

It really is no big deal, and we at TMT usually try to stay away from the more gossip-y stuff, but it's nice to get confirmation every once in awhile. Burial, the highly acclaimed dubstep producer, has officially revealed his name to be Will Bevan. According to a recent MySpace post:

for a while theres been some talk about who i am , but its not a big deal i wanted to be unknown because i just want it to be all about the tunes. over the last year the unknown thing become an issue so im not into it any more.

im a lowkey person and i just want to make some tunes, nothing else. my names will bevan, im from south london.

The name has been kicking around for quite awhile -- most notably from The Independent and his publishing company BMI -- so it's not too surprising to those of you following his every move (you should be moving to his every sound).

Meanwhile, Bevan goes on to say that he's working on a new album -- the follow-up to Untrue (TMT Review) and his self-titled release (TMT Review) -- and plans to release a 12-inch of four new songs in the "next few weeks."
