Anderson .Paak had an insane year in 2016. He dropped one of our favorite hip-hop album of the year and cracked our top 10 a second time with his NxWorries album alongside producer powerhouse Knxwledge. Now .Paak has some more big news for us…he and his touring band / collaborators The Free Nationals have an album coming out this year.
He took to Instagram announcing “2017 will bring a whole lot of amazing music your way. One of the projects I am most excited for is this freenationals LP tho!! #FreeNats #thefreenationals #obituaries #OBE” and shared the artwork (below) via twitter. The live performances we’ve seen from .Paak have been incredible and an LP on the way from his band is something we’re very stoked about.
He hasn’t given any details about the project but his hashtag has us thinking the project might be called Obituaries. We’ll see. Stay tuned for more info and new singles. In the meantime, check out a couple videos of .Paak and The Free Nationals live below. Moreover, they're joining Bruno Mars on his massive 24k Magic Tour. Enjoy!
