Person Pitch is the third solo album released by Animal Collective member Panda Bear (aka Noah Lennox), set to be released on March 20, 2007. It was leaked onto the internet in late January 2007.
Five of the seven tracks on the album have been released prior to the album in full or a shortened form. "I'm Not" and "Comfy in Nautica" released as a 7", I'm Not/Comfy in Nautica, via UUAR. "Bro's" was released as 12", Bro's, featuring a "Bro's" remix by Terrestrial Tones (featuring fellow Collective member Avey Tare) via Fat Cat Records. "Carrots" was also released as a 12" split with the band Excepter via Animal Collective's own label Paw Tracks. "Search For Delicious" was featured on a compilation (Vol. 14) from the music magazine Comes With A Smile. The album will be released as a whole on CD format only, allowing listeners to only hear the three previously released singles on vinyl.
The album was recorded by Noah Lennox alone and was mixed by Rusty Santos. Being recorded using mostly samplers, the album is a large step from Panda Bear's last album, Young Prayer, which was written and recorded after Lennox's father's death. However, Person Pitch has a much brighter sound due to its influences of Lennox's move to Portugal, marriage, and first born child.
