California native Anderson .Paak is getting ready to release a new album, Ventura, this coming April. Following his previous album Oxnard, which was released last November, .Paak stated that he recorded both projects at the same time.

You can read .Paak’s press statement below:

“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'”

Co-wrote and directed by Naima Ramos-Chapman and Terence Nance from HBO’s sketch series, Random Acts of Flyness, the picture opens up with Sweatshirt coaching a young basketball team to glory before transitioning into bizarre clips formulated to represent the album.
