Anderson. Paak is coming back sooner than you think.
Just three months after releasing his long-delayed Oxnard album, Anderson .Paak has announced that he is releasing his new album Ventura. The album will be released on April 12th via Aftermath Entertainment, and it will be executive produced by Dr. Dre.
Interestingly enough, the album was recorded around the same time as Oxnard. In a press release, .Paak said:
Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine. One town over I went further and found my depth. The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that I made two albums at the exact same time but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number so welcome to “Ventura”
With the announcement of the tour, .Paak also announced that he will be going on a massive tour. He will be joined by Thundercat, who just finished a residency at Blue Note, Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac DeMarco, and Jessie Reyez. (Thundercat will be involved with the whole tour, the others will be doing scattered dates.)
