Anderson .Paak announces new album, tour with Mac DeMarco, Noname, Thundercat & more

The album is due out in April, followed by the tour in May.

Anderson .Paak has announced a brand new album ‘Ventura’, set to be released on 12th April.

The album was executive produced by Dr. Dre and recorded at the same time as his most recent album Oxnard. Talking about the album, Anderson .Paak explained: “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’.”

He’s also announced a new tour alongside the album, which will also feature performances from Mac DeMarco, Noname, Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt, Jessie Reyez and more. See the dates below! Tickets go on sale 8th March at 10:00am.
