In advance of the May 27 release of his new album, Good Luck And Do Your Best, Gold Panda has today shared "Pink & Green," a new track (and corresponding video) from the forthcoming record.
Filmed in Japan, the video shares footage of the experiences and inspirations that led to the forthcoming album. Director Laura Lewis explains:
Derwin (Gold Panda) and I travelled to Japan twice in 2014 to collate photography for what would become the cover art for Derwin's third album, Good Luck and Do Your Best, elements of Derwin's live visuals, and a photography book (also named Good Luck and Do Your Best).
It was my first time in Japan and I was keen to capture as much as humanly possible, so whilst I was shooting stills, I also filmed as many of our travels and adventures as possible. "Pink & Green" is therefore a mini documentary / behind the scenes glimpse of what happened along the way. It features some of the wonderful people we met, inspiring places we visited, and beautiful friends in Japan who helped make the trips so memorable.
