Matthew Dear has announced a new album.

'Bunny' is due to arrive on October 12 and will include the previously released Modafinil Blues and Bad Ones, which features Tegan and Sara, who appear a second time on album track Horses.

The record is the producer's first full-length since 2012's 'Beams. As part of a statement introducing it, he said:

"Some bands have retired and come back in the amount of time since my last album. Hell, I've even played a part in making two more humans since Beams. But hey old man, why aren't I rested? Why's your boy so damn tired? Where's the music? Did I finally succumb to the burn out you always warned me of? Well, I DJ'd a lot, put out an Audion album, and submitted a DJ Kicks mix to some time capsule confused aliens will crack open somewhere far down the line. Throughout it all, as has been the case since I was 14, I made loads of weirdo music. If it weren't digital, there'd be boxes of tapes and tapes and tapes. See, that's the thing. I'm a tinkerer. I'm a loop obsessed sound hack. The process is what I get out of bed for. So what gives Pops? Where is the music?" 

Check out the full statement here and head below to stream two new tracks: album opener Bunny's Dream and Echo. The former represents a slow burn introduction, with propellant beats, layered, interlocking samples and an ethereal guitar line eventually achieving a brief flight. Echo is happier to state its intent, with flecks of Nine Inch Nails reflected in both its thudding beat and Dear's delivery.
