Anderson Paak Announces a New Album From His Free Nationals Band, Due Out This Year

Since that 10-second celebratory video announcing his deal with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment label, Anderson Paak has nary a miss. Critically-acclaimed albums as a solo act (Malibu) and as a duo (Yes Lawd! with Knxledge as NxWorries), coupled with his cult-like fanbase and essential product placement–Paak’s “Come Down” soundtracks TNT’s NBA coverage, ESPN’s NFL coverage, and EA Sports’ global Madden franchise–has exploded Anderson Paak and everything he’s touched. This year, he’ll show off another of his dimensions when he steps into band mode to release an new LP with his backing band, the Free Nationals.

The announcement comes on the heels of Paak revealing that he and the Free Nationals will be opening for Bruno Mars on Mars’ 24K Magic World Tour, which kicks off in the spring. Paak’s announcement was brief, and he didn’t hint at a release date or a title. However, his recent “Tiny Desk” concert performance for NPR might prove to be a welcomed reminder of what happens when he and the Free Nationals link up.
