Anderson .Paak teases ‘Ventura’ with new track ‘King James’

‘Ventura’ is released next month.

Anderson .Paak is set to release new album ‘Ventura’ on 12th April - and today he’s unveiled the first track from it - and the track listing.

‘King James’ is the new track, while the track listing reveals collaborations elsewhere on the record from André 3000, Smokey Robinson and Brandy.

Come Home (feat. André 3000)
Make It Better (feat. Smokey Robinson)
Reachin’ 2 Much (feat. Lalah Hathaway)

Chosen One (feat. Sonyae Elise)
Jet Black (feat. Brandy)

“Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine,” says Anderson of the album. “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’”.
