We were more than excited earlier this month when Apple released their new, Spike Jonze directed short “Welcome Home” featuring new music from none other than Anderson .Paak. From FKA Twigs manipulating the world around her to dancing with her own clone, the ad was exceedingly trippy. And today, AdWeek has given us a look into how it was all done by sharing a behind the scenes video on the making of “Welcome Home”.

It's very apparent that a lot of time and money went into this short. From incredibly large hydraulic walls to lighting design to intricate, incredibly well translated choreography we were incredibly surprised to see how much of the short was physical movement and optical illusion rather than CGI. Check out the full behind the scenes video below and enjoy!

Anderson .Paak Shares Must Hear New Song Via Trippy Spike Jonze Directed Video Starring FKA Twigs

Anderson Paak

New Anderson .Paak is here! After saying his album is due this year, we’re treated to a new song “Till It’s Over” from the TSIS favorite in form of a Spike Jonze directed video starring FKA Twigs. The video is more of a short film than a music video and brings the new song to life in the best way possible. 

FKA Twigs is seen dancing around and re-arranging the world around her with ease in the trippy and fun video. This was done alongside Apple for a campaign for their new HomePod so it’s unsure whether the song will land on an upcoming project or not. Anderson’s band The Free Nationals are also expected to release their debut album this year so stay tuned for more and enjoy!

Anderson .Paak Announces Solo Album Is Due In 2018 + New Album From His Band The Free Nationals

Anderson .Paak has just made the exciting announcement his new album is due this year! Not only his next solo album right around the corner, but also his project with his touring band and collaborators, The Free Nationals

He made the claim over a year ago that we'd hear the new Free Nationals album in 2017, but time and time again rappers have proven to be unreliable with promising new music. Now that he's shared this news, we're hoping the projects are coming sooner rather than later.  

It's been over two years since .Paak dropped his incredible album Malibu, which was our favorite hip-hop album of the year and have been patiently awaiting new music from the eclectic artist. Now, in an interview with Triple J, he’s shared his follow-up project is in the mixing stage and we can “definitely expect it this year.” Additionally he's shared very exciting news on Dr. Dre's involvement, saying he "had a heavy role in this new album that’s almost done as well. Just going through the mixing phase."

He’s also shared the star-studded guest list for the Free Nationals album, which includes contributions from Mac Miller, Daniel Caesar, Kali Uchis, possibly T.I., and of course, Anderson .Paak. Luckily, we’re going to be held over a little longer this week with his collaboration alongside James Blake for the Black Panther movie soundtrack. Stay tuned for more info and enjoy!
