We’ve got some news from Animal Collective’s Panda Bear because he has announced details of a new solo album. It will be called Panda Bear meets the Grim Reaper and it’s coming out on Domino Records on January the 12th
Panda Bear has also released a new 4 track EP called Mr Noah – the title track is the first single from the forthcoming album.
Noah Benjamin Lennox released his last solo album Tomboy in 2011 and there has since been an Animal Collective record (2012’s Centipede HZ) as well as a Panda bear Daft Punk collaboration – they recorded Do It Right together for Random Access Memories.
Recording for this album came together everywhere from El Paso, Texas, to a garage by the beach near his home in Lisbon, Portugal.
And I spoke to him about the new single Mr Noah and what we can expect from the new album…
