Panda Bear Is Premiering His New Album Via Radio


Panda Bear's global radio campaign to unspool Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper's nine songs in sequence has begun. To promote the album, which drops January 13, the artist is spreading out the premieres, with each new song debuting on a different radio station. According to Domino's interactive map and schedule, the U.S. has four: "Lonely Wanderer," on January 5 at 6 p.m. ET, via NPR's "All Songs 24/7"; "Acid Wash," on January 6 at noon ET, via NPR's "All Songs Considered"; "Selfish Gene," on January 6 at 1:05 p.m. ET, via KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic"; and "Acid Wash," on January 6 at 2 p.m. ET, via WTMD. Streaming links and times for all songs are available here, and "Sequential Circuits," the first song, will be available after broadcast here. This is basically like getting a mini, belated Advent calendar, but with (potentially) tasty tunes instead of chocolate.
