Burial revealed to be William Bevan

The Sun thought Burial's true identity might be Norman Cook or Richard D. James, but it turns out Burial himself has stepped forward and his name is . . . William Bevan. Who?


Bevan is just your ordinary English bloke who likes to make critically acclaimed dubstep "tunes" in his spare time. He decided to reveal his identity via myspace because, as he says, Over the last year the unkown thing became an issue so im not into it any more. im a lowkey person and i just want to make some tunes, nothing else." Fortunately, he's been hard at work doing just that, as he revealed that he has plenty of new tunes - enough for a four song 12" and a nearly completed third LP. [Pitchfork]

Oh well, it was interesting while it lasted. Although it seems the Independent has known who Burial is for a few months now:

I remember seeing that name "William Bevan" before.

He was probably told that if he wants to win the Mercury Prize, then he has to appear in person.

He tried, at least. Anonymity is often a good thing for art.
