Hot off the heels of winning his first ever Grammy award and not even a full four months after his recently mostly critically-acclaimed latest solo album and major label debut with Aftermath Entertainment, Oxnard, was released, world-renowned upcoming musician and Los Angeles artist, Anderson .Paak has announced he’s already dropping a new album, Ventura, on April 12th. The fourth and final installment in his beach series. He also announced his second headlining tour this year with the, Best Teef In The Game Tour.
He had the following to say about the new album and tour, “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 tour, which will of course be in support of the new album and have support as always from his band, The Free Nationals will kickoff May 17th in Nashville, TN and will span 21 major cities across the U.S. and Canada this Spring and Summer, including New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Toronto, and Vancouver, B.C., among many. Before finally concluding in San Francisco, CA on June 27th.
If that wasn’t enough, the tour will also feature Thundercat opening every date of the tour, as well as opening support from some of the best upcoming Hip-Hop and R&B artists in the game such as Earl Sweatshirt, Chicago’s very own Noname, Mac DeMarco and Jessie Reyez.
