Linn is giving away a great gift to all music lovers this Christmas with the chance to download a free daily track from a host of clairemartinmajor Linn artists – in Studio Master quality, the highest download quality available.

From 1st December Linn’s online advent calendar will offer 24 days of free downloads, giving everybody the chance to explore and expand their musical taste. Every day up until Christmas Eve, Linn will be giving music loversx the chance to discover a new piece from its music catalogue, with a different track free to download.

There’s sure to be something for everyone to enjoy, including a diverse selection of genres, in addition to well-known favourite artists such as: Britain’s First Lady of Jazz Claire Martin, the compelling Australian singer-songwriter Emily Barker, Scottish legend Dougie MacLean and many more. I downloaded some of the tunes last year and was suitably impressed…and who doesn’t love a freebie?

24-bit Studio Master downloads can be enjoyed using a dedicated network music player or via a laptop or PC, and are the highest quality music files available. They allow the listener to hear music exactly as it was recorded, before it was altered to fit on a CD or squashed down to MP3 size.
