It’s been about a year and a half since Anderson .Paak dropped his highly-acclaimed ‘Malibu’ album. Over that time he has released a compilation with producer Knxwledge and today he returns with his new one “Automatic.”
“Why can’t we let the past be the past, love? / For some odd reason, I can’t get passed that / My soul’s exposed for you to glance at,” raps .Paak.
The single has .Paak asking questions and addressing interpersonal relationships with conversation. In rare form, Anderson takes a backseat and let’s Taku handle the chorus, while he takes care of the verses with layered vocals.
.Paak is currently on J. Cole’s “4 Your Eyez Only Tour” along with his band, The Free Nationals. Prior to that he was promoting ‘Malibu’ on Bruno Mars’ “24k Magic Tour.”
