Anderson .Paak sat down for an interview with Australia’s triple j radio station and revealed that Dr. Dre is heavily involved with the album process. Anderson is currently working on his third studio album, the follow up to his 2016’s widely-acclaimed Malibu LP.

“[Dr. Dre] had a heavy role in this new album that’s almost done as well,” Anderson .Paak said. “Just going through the mixing phase. I won’t say any dates but you can definitely expect it this year, sometime … It’s dope to be around like legends like that and you can feel the mutual respect. That’s what I always did it for, I wasn’t really thinking about money or fame, I just wanted the respect from the people I look up to musically. It’s amazing.”

The Free Nationals, who are the backing band behind Anderson .Paak, was also interviewed and shared that they are working on their album and have collaborated with Mac Miller, Kali Uchis, Daniel Caesar, T.I. and Unknown Mortal Orchestra for the LP

“It’s almost done,” FreeNats guitarist Jose Rios tells triple j Breakfast. “Next couple of months it should be out… before [June/July]. We’re putting the finishing touches on it right now.”

New music should be out soon.
