/24-7PressRelease/ - BROOKLYN, NY, June 03, 2007 - Ghostly International recording artist Matthew Dear is featured in a series of eight short videos that showcase a variety of songs from Dears' latest album 'Asa Breed'. Sam Va-lenti IV, founder of Ghostly International was introduced to m ss ng p eces in March 2007 and a collaboration ensued. 'I was already a fan of their work with Cool Hunting, and their style felt like a proper fit for Matthew's new release. Matthew has taken things in a new direction with this record and there was an opportunity to do something truly unique."
"Distributing video content online creates an opportunity to experiment with traditional methods of music video production and develop new standards." says Scott Thrift, Creative Director of m ss ng p eces. Ari Kuschnir, the producer of mp adds, "Music vid-eos have always been in a sense commercials that seek to spark interest in a particular artist. We are offering an alternative to an extravagant video production for a single song in favor of a series of short vignettes for an entire album."
The eight video vignettes are being distributed exclusively through a number of online publications for the next 10 days and will be publicly available on May 25th at http://matthewdear.blip.tv/ and matthewdear.com. Matthew Dear's new album, 'Asa Breed' goes on sale worldwide on June 5th 2007.
