Listen to "King James", the first song from Anderson .Paak's forthcoming album Ventura out April 12th via Aftermath Entertainment, exclusively distributed by 12 Tone Music, LLC.

"King James"

Ventura switches gears to soul from the grit and urgency that Oxnard brought acting as a juxtaposition to the two towns where .Paak grew up. Anderson explains: "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. 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'".
You can see him live this spring/summer in support of the album on a nation wide tour making stops at New York City's Madison Square Garden, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago and much more. 'Best Teef In The Game' tour will include support fromThundercat on all dates and Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac DeMarco and Jessie Reyez on select dates (full dates and support below).
