West Coast vocal wizard Anderson Paak will be soon dropping a new EP, a full-force collaboration with Blended Babies entitled The Anderson .Paak EP. Yes, the title may not be the cleverest of all time, but its lead single “So Slow” is one that’ll have you feeling some kind of way. Slathered with wah-wah guitar and a restrained, funky-as-hell beat, the track brings to mind California streets just after dusk. This is the joint that’ll make you drive three extra times around the block, just to hear the whole thing play. Paak actually does sing about slow drives on the track’s hook, and given how smooth the whole thing flows, “So Slow” should capitalize on his new post-Compton fame in all the right ways.
The new joint premiered over at Pigeons & Planes, and in a statement Blended Babies spilled the beans on how it all came together. “We produced and recorded this with Anderson prior to the Compton album earlier this year. King Chip heard the record and wanted to get on it, and Anderson was with it and felt like it was a natural collaboration.” You can already purchase yourself a copy of “So Slow” on iTunes, and the streamable version of it is waiting just below. The Anderson .Paak EP drops on September 25th and will boast additional features from Donnie Trumpet and Asher Roth; you better believe we’ll be keeping you looped in on it.
