Mercury Nominee Comes Clean

Reclusive dubstep pioneer and nominee for the Mercury music prize Burial has revealed his true identity in a statement on his Myspace page.

At one point Burial was rumoured to be fellow Mercury nominee Thom Yorke, but this new statement has cleared any mystery. For a long time his identity was unknown even in the close knit dubstep community, with these new revelations sparking discussion across messageboards devoted to this relatively new music.

Burial's statement reads as follows:

"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. I'm a lowkey person and I just want to make some tunes, nothing else. My names Will Bevan, I'm from South London, I'm keeping my head down and just going to finish my next album, theres going to be a 12" maybe in the next few weeks too with 4 tunes. Hope u like it, I'll try put a tune up later.

Sorry for any rubbish tunes I made in the past, I'll make up for it

A big big thank you to anyone who ever supported me, liked my tunes or sent me messages, it means the world to me.

Big up everyone, take care, Will ( Burial )
