Experimental instrumental hip hop type Gold Panda has announced that he will release his debut album, ‘Lucky Shiner’, through Notown on 11 Oct. This will be preceded by a single, ‘Snow & Taxis’, on 4 Oct.

The album was recorded in what sound like quite relaxing surroundings, his aunt and uncle’s house in the Essex countryside. Gold Panda explains: “They went away over Christmas for two weeks and asked me to look after their dog. I’d walk Daisy in the morning and then make tunes till she pestered me to take her out again, I’d bounce down what I’d done, stick my headphones on and walk her; get ideas and repeat the process”.
