Anderson Paak is ponying up another swan song in Ventura County.
Anderson .Paak just announced the progenitive project to 2018’s Oxnard, titled Ventura, the third solo project in succession to honor a unique setting to play an immersive role in his musical upbringing. Not only that, the project is dropping sooner than later (April 12) along with plans to promote the album on the road – alongside Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Thundercat, Mac Demarco, and Jessie Reyez, given the ordinance of time and place.View image on Twitter
“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,” Paak told Complex with regards to his inspiration on the project. “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 full tour schedule is included in the above thumbnail. Paak didn’t provide the press with any other details concerning Ventura or its accompanying tour. He did, however, allude to Dr. Dre‘s “heavy involvement” in the production phase. The tour kicks off on May 17 in Nashville, coming to a close a month later in San Francisco – stay tuned.
