Gold Panda has returned with new single ‘Transactional Relationship’, his first new release under that name since 2016.

The track samples ‘Sever’ by Hilary Woods, from her 2018 album ‘Colt’. “I had a track nearly done [when I] bought the Hilary Woods LP after seeing her support Low at the Barbican and decided to give it a play during a tea break”, the producer explains.

“There were bits that went really well with what I’d made”, he goes on, “so I decided to chop parts up in my MPC and layered them over my track, thus ruining Hilary’s song for evermore. I did a sort of ‘live take’ and that was it”.

As well as this standalone single, Gold Panda has been in the studio working on more new music. So new albums as both Gold Panda and Selling – his project with Simian Mobile Disco’s Jas Shaw – are forthcoming.
