It’s looking set to be Anderson .Paak’s golden year. His debut album Malibu shot to critical acclaim in 2016, and he’s about to embark out with Bruno Mars on the European leg of his 24K Magic World Tour as support.

Cryptic snippets from the Twittersphere this week seem to have confirmed that the California native will be teaming up with psychedelic electronic wizard Flying Lotus at some point this year. What exactly we can expect from this collaboration is not yet known; Paak may be set to make a guest appearance on Flying Lotus’s upcoming as yet untitled album, or this tweet may be pointing towards a larger set of collaborations between the pair

Whatever the case is, it seems that something is in the works! In addition to this, Paak’s house band The Free Nationals are set to release a new LP in 2017, check out their Twitter feed for more information.
