In a recent edition of the Sunday Times, bearded balladeer David Gray admitted to working on an unplugged cover of Burial’s Archangel.
“It took a while for this music to hit home,” he said, “but a loud, messed-up listen in the back of the tour bus completely unlocked it for me. I’m working on an acoustic version.”
I’ve nothing personal against David Gray. He’s always seemed an affable guy with a knack for knocking out a catchy tune. But I’m begging him, on behalf of everyone who sees Burial as a fortress of creative integrity in an industry defined by cut-and-paste scenester bullsh*t, to leave Archangel well alone.
For those who need to consider this in context, here is the official video for David’s latest single. And here is Burial’s Archangel (needless to say there’s no official video).
Please forward this to everyone you know, and once there are enough signatures I’ll see that David gets it.
