Anderson .Paak has announced new album Ventura, which will be out  April 12 via Aftermath. Executive produced by Dr. Dre, the record was made at the same time as last year's Oxnard. "Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine," says Anderson of the LP. "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.”

He's also just announced a big new tour with his band The Free Nationals called the "Best Teef in the Game Tour" where Thundercat will join him on all dates, with Mac DeMarco, Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, and Jessie Reyez joining at various stops along the way. It kicks off May 17 in Nashville and includes a stop in NYC at Madison Square Garden on May 30 with Earl Sweatshirt. Tickets for the tour go on sale to the general public Friday, March 8 at 10 AM local time, with a Verified Fan presale starting March 6 at 10 AM. Each ticket purchase comes with a CD or digital download of Ventura. All dates are listed below.

Anderson .Paak just played NYC last weekend, while Earl Sweatshirt recently announced his own tour.
