Burial Soundtracks Burberry Autumn/Winter 2023 Runway Show

Burial Soundtracks Burberry AW23

‘Shell of Light’, ‘Homeless,’ and ‘Traunt’ were among the songs accompanying Burberry’s AW23 runway show.

Daniel Lee, Burberry’s newly appointed chief creative officer, chose to feature five songs from Burial in his first show for the British fashion house.

This marks the first time the legendary producer and creator of one of electronic music’s most heralded albums ‘Untrue’ has had his music used in a major fashion event.

The show took place on Monday (February 20th) at London’s Kennington Park. It was accompanied by two tracks from ‘Untrue’: ‘Shell of Light’ and ‘Homeless’, as well as three of Burial’s more recent releases: ‘Traunt’, ‘Exokind’, and ‘Young Death’.

Burial’s soundtracking of the show follows a series of recent releases from the artist including ‘Prophecy’. A long-forgotten collaboration between Burial and EL-B, which was originally produced in 2009.

Burial also surprise-released a new EP via Hyperdub, ‘Streetlands’, back in October.

This show was a first for Burial but is not the first time an electronic music artist has soundtracked a major fashion event.

In 2022, techno icon Richie Hawtin debuted new music from his Plasktiman alias at a Prada runway show. A few months later, House Legend Moodymann soundtracked a Bottega Veneta fashion show in Detroit.
