Shapeshifting Canadian songwriter Daniel Romano released a new album just last week, but the wildly prolific Canadian artist has already unveiled yet another project. This one is an ambient piece under the name varianza.

Under this new name, Romano has released "The Abstract Expanse," a single 25-minute track that is streaming though Bandcamp. It costs $2 to buy.

The artist plans to put out a new ambient piece every week. He wrote on Instagram, "In an attempt to remunerate I am offering a weekly series of 25 minute (ish) meditations. Composed with the intent to reverberate, harmonize and reconstitute the spirit. They will be very easy on the pocket (but not free because music is a mysticism WORTH valuing) and I hope that they can offer a space for mirth and repose."

Listen to "The Abstract Expanse" below.
