Linn is offering a free song by download each day of December through Christmas. Here's what the email notice I received states:"Get in the festive spirit with a free Studio Master download every day until Christmas. With 24 days of magical recordings by a host of great musicians, you can relax from the bustle of Christmas and enjoy a musical gift from Linn...
There’s something for everyone to enjoy - from the lively lilts of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and a captivating concerto from the Avison Ensemble, to foot-stomping indie-rock band Admiral Fallow and the absorbing rhythms of Emma Pollock (The Delgados). Each track is available in Studio Master - the highest quality download available anywhere, letting you hear a song exactly as it was recorded. Every note, every beat captured just as it sounded before it was shrunk to fit on CD or squashed down to MP3 size.
Don’t forget to check back each day - by Christmas you’ll have an unbelievable playlist, with love from Linn."
At the time of this post there are two songs available, the first in 24/88.2 and the second in 24/96 maximum resolutions. When you select the downloads in your preferred format to "purchase", it then goes through the normal sale process but since they are free you are not prompted for any credit card information.
Here's the URL to access the downloads: http://christmas.linn.co.uk/
Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
