Update [November 28, 9 AM]: Burial shared his latest two-track EP, Young Death, on Bandcamp today. Listen to it here.

Young Death, a new 12" from Burial, was accidentally sold at Sonic Boom Records, a record store in Toronto. The 12" has already surfaced on Discogs and was reportedly available for purchase on Black Friday, reports Pitchfork. Although Hyperdub, Burial's label, did not list an official release date for the 12", the Discogs listings included November 30.

"[The box the records came in] said 'artist/title,'" Blair Whatamore, a record buyer for Sonic Boom told Pitchfork. "We assumed it was a Black Friday secret listing. It wasn't really clear to us that we weren't supposed to be selling it." The store also reportedly got a phone call from someone who works at Hyperdub and "was not happy" about the sales.

Young Death is a two-track 12". Read the tracklisting below. In August, writer Kyle MacNeill wrote about how Burial's music changed and saved his life.
