Anderson .Paak drops some news: new album and biggest, coolest tour yet

While you may still be clutching to your Anderson .Paak tickets on the current tour some much bigger news have come through the news channels: new album, Ventura, is set to drop on April 12th and his biggest tour to date will kick off on May 17th.

Now what’s so special about this tour, you might wonder. Well a few things, for one the stops are across some pretty stellar, classy venues, including Madison Square Garden, but what’s more special is the guests. On average 2 per city the range of friends includes Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac Demarco, and Jessie Reyez. A lineup of friends that speaks to Anderson .Paaks true variety of musical passions.

The new album was recorded at the same time as his most recent album, Oxnard, and the overlap has purpose: “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,” .Paak shares.
