Gold Panda’s ‘Lucky Shiner’ Out Now on CD/LP/Digital; CMJ Festival + Worldwide Tour
Yes, the digital version has been available since August 12th. However, Gold Panda‘s debut album, Lucky Shiner, is “officially” out now and available in all fine record stores and reputable download retailers on CD/LP/Digital. The record can be purchased at The Ghostly Store which includes exclusive bonus tracks.
Also, the first single, “Snow & Taxis,” is available at The Ghostly Store (digital only) now and available at all digital retailers on November 2nd in North America and Continental Europe while the 12″/Digital version is available in the UK now. The single includes remixes from Glitterbug and Throwing Snow . Cologne-based producer Glitterbug’s “Pink Snow Balls Remix” stretches Gold Panda’s original to nearly twice its length, expanding the track’s sense of time into nine minutes of luscious ambient twirls and swirls. UK producer Throwing Snow bumps the BPM to a near-frantic speed and stirs up a flurry of micro-samples that lend “Snow & Taxis” a giddy, disorienting rush.
Gold Panda begins his worldwide tour this week which includes a stop in New York for the CMJ Festival. Full dates below:
10.14 Munich, DE @ Atomic Cafe
