Anderson .Paak is at the top of his game. In 2015 he lit up Dr. Dre's Compton, standing out among some titans of the biz that include Kendrick Lamar and Eminem. He released one of 2016's best records in January with commercial and creative breakthrough Malibu. Then he released another excellent LP later in the year with buzzy producer Knxledge called Yes Lawd! as Nx Worries.
And dude isn't slowing down—and he wants you to know it. He took to Twitter recently to announce that, yes, he will release a new album in 2017 with his live band, The Free Nationals.
Perhaps they'll record the album when they're on tour with Bruno Mars across Europe this spring?
