According to a post on Gorilla Vs Bear, "Panda Bear is once again working with Sonic
Boom, this time on a ‘break-centric,’ 9th Wonder-influenced new album.” Eventually it
goes on to announce, "No release date yet for the record, which features tracks
‘constructed out of samples of self-made sounds’" before it declares that the new album is "meant as a celebration of the fact that new growth sometimes requires death."
Domino records has since confirmed this statement, adding that "We are pleased to
announce that the forthcoming Panda Bear album will be released on Domino later this year. Panda Bear is currently at work on the new album, which is tentatively titled Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, with Tomboy producer Sonic Boom. More details to follow."
