Anderson .Paak has shared the tracklist for his upcoming new album ‘Ventura’, with the record set to feature a slew of guest appearances from the likes of André 3000 and the late Nate Dogg – and you can now listen to the album’s new single ‘King James’ below.
.Paak is making a swift return after only dropping his last album, ‘Oxnard’, back in November. That record contained guest features by Kendrick Lamar, Pusha-T and J.Cole among others, while Dr. Dre served as an executive producer on the album.
‘Ventura’ will be released on April 12, and .Paak has today (March 14) revealed its full tracklist and artwork. André will feature on the opening track ‘Come Home’, while Nate Dogg is a posthumous guest on the closing track ‘What Can We Do’. See .Paak’s announcement post below.

.Paak admitted, however, that the pair regularly clashed in the studio. “It can be frustrating at times. We butt heads – and his head is bigger than mine, too,” .Paak said, before joking: “He’s bigger, so it’s ‘Alright, Dre, sounds good to me.’”
