Noah Lennox, better known by his moniker Panda Bear, has announced a release date for the follow-up to 2011′s Tomboy. There’s been rumblings of a new album since early last year, and Lennox has certainly made it worth our wait. The new LP, titled Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper, will be out in mid-January. We received the news in true Panda Bear-style, via a promotional video that features an elaborately dressed Grim Reaper, decked out in full flair with a sequined red cape, cradling a giant, stuffed panda. The album’s first single “Mr Noah” also has an official video, which you can watch below.

Additionally, “Mr Noah” is featured on an EP of the same name, which was released earlier this morning along with the album news. The 4-track Mr Noah EP is currently available for download on iTunes, or you’ll get it immediately when you pre-order Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper.

Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper will be out January 13, 2015 via Domino.

There’s album art and a full tracklisting, for both the album and the EP, below too.
