I want to go to Brazil, right now. You can’t always get what you want though. On the flip side, it’s been nearly three years since Gold Panda released his debut album Lucky Shiner, leaving us hungry for more. Now the MPC maestro is set to return with his new LP Half Of Where You Live coming out via Ghostly International and his own NOTOWN label (UK) on June 11th.

Gold Panda is a globe trotter. Born in Britain, he has lived in Japan and studied at the School of Oriental and African Studies at University of London. Half Of Where You Live is said to be a product of a period spent touring the world multiple times around, absorbing influences and probing potential new avenues of creative exploration. Listen to the first single “Brazil” here.

You can pre-order Half of Where You Live at The Ghostly Store and Notown’s shop now. Gold Panda tour dates including North America below.
