Forest Swords (a.k.a Merseyside producer Matthew Barnes) has shared "Panic," the third track to be lifted from forthcoming album Compassion, out May 5 via Ninja Tune.

The track journeys between a rumbling cello loop, chiming bells, and clattering beat, pulling in a reworked northern soul sample for the track'’s ecstatic hook.

"Most of the tracks on Compassion were started in quite a heavy place but all managed to move towards the light the longer I worked on them,"” says Matthew. “”""Panic"” is the point where tension and stress boils over into a sort of euphoria.”"

Ahead of the album's May 5 release, "Panic" is streamable via the player above.
