[Download] John Butler Releases 2012 Version of 'Ocean' for Free

This song is why John Butler is my favorite musician. Today he released the 2012 version of his ever changing instrumental masterpiece known as Ocean. In addition to giving us a mesmerizing video capturing Butler in his own home recording studio, The Compound, Butler is giving the track away free of charge. The gesture comes as a simple thank you to his fans for their continued support.

"Ocean is a very interesting aspect of my life," says Butler. "It's part of my DNA. It conveys all things I can't put into words. Life, loss, love, spirit. As I evolve, so too does Ocean." 

First recorded when Butler was distributing cassette tapes as albums while street performing, Ocean is simply a work of art (over 25,000,000 views of the song in various formats on YouTube is a testament to this). From a relentlessly dented guitar to his grimy hair, John Butler is a nothing short of a modern day legend. Hit the jump after streaming the newly recorded version below to see him in action.
