Anderson .Paak Announces New Album 'Ventura'
Just three months since his last album, Anderson .Paak has announced Ventura, the fourth and final chapter in his beach-themed series.
The follow-up to November’s Oxnard is set for release April 12 via Aftermath Entertainment. Executive produced by Dr. Dre, the project—which .Paak calls “the last wave”—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,” said the Grammy winner. “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.”
Ventura marks the follow-up to Oxnard, which debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard 200, and featured appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, J. Cole, Q-Tip, and Pusha-T.
The last wave. Ventura. The album. 4.12.19 🌊
