Following his 2010 debut album, Lucky Shiner, Gold Panda is set to release his sophomore album, Half of Where You Live. Along with the news of his new record, we also have our first taste of the project in the form of “Brazil.” Says Gold Panda of track:

“It was mental… we were nervous about going. People kept telling us ‘it’s not safe.’ It was fine, but the track reflects the sensation of travelling from the airport and hitting this sprawling metropolis, and the disparity between old Brazil and the new economically prosperous country. Like, I was drinking a daiquiri for $40 at the top of a skyscraper that looks like shit.”
