Returning with his first new release since 2019’s Transactional Relationship, today Gold Panda has shared a new single titled “I’ve Felt Better (Than I Do Now)“, out now on City Slang.
“I made this when my daughter was two years old and I felt knackered and I’d turned 41” he comments. “The samples just came together and sounded like “I’ve felt better…” and at the same time I was looking at my anti-depressants feeling tired and just thought ‘ha, that’s right!’”
“I mess with chopping up samples until I get an interesting loop so I never set out to write a track; I’m led by the samples and then go from there. Funnily enough, My life now is actually way better than it was 10 years ago and I’m a bit healthier and I probably actually do feel better in general (apart from when I had that brain haemorrhage last year).”
Written and recorded over the last twelve months at his new studio at home in East London, “I’ve Felt Better (Then I Do Now)” sounds like exactly what it is: a fresh and energised Gold Panda, and an exciting hint of what else is to come in 2022.
