Anderson .Paak announces new album 'Ventura'

Despite only returning at the end of last year to release his heavily-praised new album 'Oxnard', Anderson .Paak has now announced his plans to release the record's follow-up in the coming months.

The new full-length 'Ventura' was recorded during the sessions surrounding 'Oxnard', like its predecessor was also produced by Dr. Dre, and is set to be released on the 12th April.

Speaking about his quick return, he added, “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’.”

The frontman is also planning an extensive US tour to support the record, which will also feature guest performances from Mac DeMarco, Noname, Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt, and Jessie Reyez. Tickets go on sale on the 8th March at 10am, and you can check out the full list of dates below.
