While releasing tracks for free isn’t exactly earth-shattering these days, it’s nice to see more and more artists realizing the benefits of it and jumping aboard the bandwagon. The latest to do so is none other than Matthew Dear. As part of a collaboration with online imprint RCDRD LBL, whose mission is basically to get as much free, legal music to the masses as possible, Ghostly has prepared Dear’s track “Don’t Go This Way” for download exclusively through its page on the RCRD LBL site.

The track itself is an unreleased item from Dear’s Asa Breed recording session, and is said to feature “a hypnotic percussive line, silvery synth stabs, disembodied falsettos, and a characteristic sense of suspense.” If that doesn’t sound like Matthew Dear, we don’t know what does.

“Don’t Go This Way” will be out February 20.
