Anderson .Paak has been on an unstoppable role lately, and his run of good work just seems to keep going. The Californian musician/MC has just released a new album of live performances on Spotify, which showcase his next-level set at SXSW earlier this year.
The 11-track-long release features material from his latest, critically-acclaimed sophomore effort, Malibu, as well as select numbers from his debut LP Venice. The set also features a live performance of ‘Suede‘, which was released under the moniker of NxWorries; a collaboration between .Paak and virtuosic LA producer, Knxwledge.
Don’t be put off by the “live” aspect of this release. Anderson .Paak is one the few supremely talented artists whose live self is a thousand times better than the studio-produced .Paak the majority of us have come to know and love.
Have a listen to Live from Spotify House SXSW ’16 below.
