Matthew Dear emerges from hiatus with two new songs ahead of new album

Experimental electronica aficionado Matthew Dear has announced he is putting out his first studio album since 2012:  Bunny, a Ghostly International production. To accompany the news, he has shared two new original tracks, the aesthetically adverse “Bunny’s Dream” and “Echo.”

The 14-track project, due out October 12 of this year, is to include the previously-released “Modafinil Blues” and collaborative offering with indie alternative duo, Tegan and Sara, “Bad Ones,” foreshadowing the likely complex, highly nuanced nature of the upcoming album.

In a recent release, Dear explains the reasoning behind the album’s en-Dear-ing title choice”

“I’m calling this one Bunny. As always, it’s got a little bit of everything that makes me who I am. Why Bunny? Fundamentally, I love the way the word looks and sounds. I love the way it rolls off the mind and onto the tongue… Bunnies are cute. Bunnies are weird. They’re soft. They’re sexy. They’re lucky. They wildly procreate. They trick hunters, but get tricked by turtles. They lead you down holes…”

The two starkly contrasting tracks serve to represent both the whimsical and gritty sides of Dear’s productions, respectively.
