With just over a week until the album officially hits retail, Gold Panda lets the entire LP go for some free pre-purchase streaming. It’s always a sign of confidence in an artist’s work when they do such a thing, and I’ve got little doubt that confidence is going to be fully justified.
11 tracks made the cut, including the previously-released Brazil and We Work Nights, and as if this full stream weren’t enough, he’s also been kind enough to throw forth a video for My Father In Hong Kong 1961 (which is of course, also on the album). The latter continues the international vibe Gold Panda seems to be aiming for with this project, and is an incredibly fascinating watch, purely for its simple yet captivating portrayal of everyday life and scenery in the region, and comes ably backed by an Eastern-inspired production of an atmospheric nature. Watch that here, and stream the album below; don’t forget to buy it next week on the 11th too.
