Gold Panda has unveiled a new track 'Brazil' – scroll down to listen to it.

The song is the first to be taken from the Essex-born, Berlin-based producer's forthcoming new album 'Half Of Where You Live', which will be released on June 10 and follows his last LP, 2010's 'Lucky Shiner'.

The album, according to a statement, reflects his time spent touring the world in the last three years. 'Brazil' in particular was written about a trip he made to Sao Paulo: "It was mental," he says, "we were nervous about going. People kept telling us ‘it’s not safe.’ It was fine, but the track reflects the sensation of traveling 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."

Gold Panda has also announced that he will play a special Record Store Day gig on April 20 at Drift Records in Totnes. He is also lined up to appear at a number of festivals over the summer including Glastonbury, Portugal's Optimus Alive and Lovebox in London.
