Gold Panda

Gold Panda is a real tease. First he drops the video for ‘Time Eater’ to get us hyped for his new album Good Luck and Do Your Best (due for release on May 27th), and now he’s dropped another new video to keep our appetites whet and our blood pumping.

At least he’s been pretty cute about it. The video for new track ‘In My Car’ takes him back to his home town of Chelmsford and, even more intimately, to his grandmother’s house. The aim of the video, according to Gold Panda himself, was to achieve a video that was ‘boring’. Actually, he realised the outcome “doesn’t seem mundane at all. It seems actually really nice and sweet.”

The video drop comes with Gold Panda announcing a bunch of new tours dates, including shows in Leeds, New York and an appearance at Meltdown Festival in Berlin. A full list of tour dates can be found below.

Still doesn’t really let him off the fact that he’s dropping these gems and leaving us hanging for almost two months until we get the release in all its glory. But hey, you can’t have everything, right?
