For those familiar with Anderson .Paak, there’s no escaping the presence of the Free Nationals. After first rising to prominence as .Paak’s backing band, the quartet forged chemistry that would ultimately develop into a creative bond. Now, Jose Rios (guitars), Ron Tnava Avant (keyboards), Kelsey Gonzales (bass), and Callum Connor (drums) have officially dropped off their eponymous debut self-titled album.
Free Nationals spans 13 tracks, including the singles “Beauty & Essex” with Daniel Caesar and Unknown Mortal Orcestra, and “Time” featuring Kali Uchis and the late Mac Miller. Other guest artists include Paak, Conway the Machine, Westside Gunn, T.I., and Syd.
