    Gold Panda has released a surprise five-song EP entitled Kingdom. Fact Mag reports, "According to a press release, the producer was inspired to write the EP by the recent EU referendum and an incident that happened to his Afghan neighbour." The outlet goes goes on to quote the press release, "It was made after talking to a neighbour who moved his family from Afghanistan to the UK. He ordered a phone off Amazon so he could call home, but the delivery driver signed for it and kept it. I thought this was a pretty s***ty welcome. I made a couple of less happy songs that are very very loosely based around that and my Brexit fears, which were sadly confirmed."

    Back in May, Gold Panda released his fourth studio LP, Good Luck and Do Your Best. The album has been critically lauded. He is currently on tour and will next appear at the Dour Festival in Belgium. Following that appearance, he will play three more shows in Europe before heading to North America for a concert in Santa Cruz, California on August 24th. He will play nine shows across the continent before returning to Europe for more headlining shows and festivals.

    Kingdom Tracklist:
    1. A Welcome
    2. Mediaevil
    3. Stolen Phone
    4. Blown (Out)
    5. Eurotunnel
