Anderson .Paak Announces New Album 'Ventura' & 'Best Teef In The Game Tour' With Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt & More

Fans of the GRAMMY Award-winning and multifaceted musician Anderson .Paak let out a collective "Yes Lawd!!" when the always unpredictable artist confirmed both new music and an upcoming tour. Just a few months following the release of his third studio album Oxnard, he announced that a new project entitled Ventura is on its way in April. The news didn’t come as a complete surprise, because during his recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon he noted that he had two albums worth of music made with legendary producer Dr. Dre. While explaining the contrast between the gritty town of Oxnard where he grew up and the next town over, he also spoke about the city of Ventura, stating, “It gave me a lot more character and soul, and I think I have a lot more soul music to present.” Though his candid yet cryptic statement raised our music-loving antennas, given that he is gearing up to head out on the European leg of his Andy’s Beach Club World Tour, we assumed we’d have to wait for new music. Much to our delight, .Paak is ready with more than enough material to feed our soulful appetites.
