Anderson .Paak has announced his next album Ventura is on its way. According to a press release, the project is expected to arrive on April 12. Just like his last album Oxnard, the upcoming effort is executive produced by Dr. Dre and will be delivered via Aftermath Entertainment.
As Paak hinted on a recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ventura was recorded at the same time as Oxnard.
“Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine,” Paak said in the press release. “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, who won a Best Rap Song Grammy for “Bubblin’” earlier this month, also unveiled several U.S. tour dates.
The run kicks off on May 17 in Nashville and concludes on June 27 in San Francisco with stops at legacy venues such as Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks Amphitheater along the way. Special guests Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac Demarco and Jessie Reyez will appear on select dates.
