Gold Panda has shared the latest single from his forthcoming record The Work, which arrives on November 11 via City Slang. Following previous offerings ‘I’ve Felt Better (Than I Do Now)’ and ‘The Corner’, ‘The Dream’ arrives with an accompanying video directed by Rob Brandon. Check it out below.
“‘The Dream’ was actually multiple songs to begin with, the harpy bits were separate but I dropped those samples into this song and it just went together really nicely, the drums were made in max/msp and then sampled into an MPC,” Gold Panda elaborated in a press release. “Organic sounding vinyl samples and digital drums and textures are my favourite combination. I never knew how this song would end up, a bit like a dream, a new element is introduced, seemingly out of place until the other parts come back in again…. then suddenly it was finished! Now I can hear it finally as a whole piece, it existed as multiple songs for so long and it makes no sense and total sense.”
Rob Brandon added: “I was trying out a bunch of VR apps on my iPhone 6 and stumbled on some fun stuff. It’s a combination of the things I’ve been exploring for the last year.”
