Panda Bear (aka Noah Lennox of Animal Collective) is releasing a new album, Buoys, on February 8 via Domino. Previously he shared its first single, “Dolphin” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), as well as a trailer for the album. Now Panda Bear has shared another song from Buoys, “Token,” via a video for the song directed by, and starring, fellow musician Dean Blunt. Watch it below, followed by Panda Bear’s upcoming tour dates.

The album is the follow-up to 2015’s Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper and 2018’s A Day With the Homies EP, released on vinyl back in January. Buoys was recorded in Lennox’s adopted home of Lisbon, Portugal. Rusty Santos co-produced and co-mixed the album with Lennox and two last worked together on Panda Bear’s acclaimed 2007 album Person Pitch. The album also features Chilean DJ/vocalist Lizz and Portuguese musician Dino D’Santiago. Danny Perez created the album’s artwork, with photography by Fernanda Pereira and additional design by Rob Carmichael of SEEN. Hugo Oliveira did the painting of Lennox that is acting as his press photo and it was then photographed by Fernanda Pereira.

Lennox had this to say about Buoys in a previous press release: “The last three records felt like a chapter to me, and this feels like the beginning of something new.”
