Panda Bear Treats 'Atiba Song' to Official Release
Ahead of releasing his Tomboy album in 2011, Panda Bear soundtracked a skateboarding video from director Atiba Jefferson with the fittingly titled "Atiba Song." Now, the piece has been given an official release.

On Twitter yesterday (October 25), the Animal Collective member shared the track with fans as a free download, encouraging them to "hang in there." He also noted that Jefferson lent a hand on drum production. Fans remarked on Reddit what a change it was to hear the song without the skateboard noise, but we've included the original video alongside "Atiba Song" below in the event you would like to listen like it's 2011. 

Panda Bear released his Buoys album last year, while Animal Collective also took 2019 to celebrate a decade of Merriweather Post Pavilion with live album Ballet Slippers.
