Matthew Dear Delivering Expanded Edition of 'Beams'
Published May 29, 2013Apparently Matthew Dear sold his last LP Beams short when he issued it last fall, as the avant-pop performer is getting set to deliver an expanded version of the album. Ghostly International serves up the set digitally June 17.
On top of the original 11-song LP, the "Complete Edition" comes packaged with a previously unreleased single titled "She's Just That Way." You can sample the piano-plunking slice of pop down below.
In addition, the release features previously released B-sides and a number of remixes of Beams tracks whipped up by the likes of Black Moth Super Rainbow's Tobacco, KiNK, Poolside, Michna, Jessy Lanza and more. You can check out the tracklisting down below.
Dear has a stretch of European dates coming up supporting Depeche Mode, and you can peep the details beneath the tracklisting.
