Gold Panda has debuted “We Work Nights” the second track from his sophomore album Half of Where You Live in anticipation of its June 11 release date. This track follows up “Brazil” a bright, beat-heavy song that was the first taste of the new record.
The song title references his previous job, working the 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. shift in a mail-sorting office in the UK, alongside a busy performing schedule. “This song is dedicated to anyone getting paid shit money to work terribly unsociable hours,” Derwin Panda, the man behind Gold Panda writes of the track.
Half of Where You Live follows up Gold Panda’s initial foray into the music world Lucky Shiner, which garnered critical attention back in 2010. Look for his second album in the beginning of June and stream the eastern-infused, swaying new song below.
