Panda Bear Will Premiere Tracks From ‘Grim Reaper’ Via Radio Campaign
Streaming might be the way many people listen to music these days, but radio is far from being dead -- and it looks like Panda Bear believes in the medium as well as he has decided to premiere the tracks off his upcoming album, 'Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper,' through a global radio campaign.
Starting with the first track off the album, 'Sequential Circuits,' the premieres will kick off on Sunday (Jan. 4) with Mary Ann Hobbs' BBC 6 show from 7AM-10AM GMT (2AM-5AM ET) in the U.K. Other songs from the album will also be played on radio stations in nine other countries including Columbia, Germany, Japan and Portugal.
In the U.S., two different tracks will premiere -- 'Selfish Genre' on KCRW's 'Morning Becomes Eclectic,' and 'Acid Wash' on WTMD and NPR's 'All Songs Considered' podcast. All of the U.S. premieres will take place on Jan. 6. Visit the Domino Records' website for information on times and dates of the song premieres.
'Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper' officially drops on Jan. 13.
