We are psyched to have one of the world’s most exciting live acts, ANDERSON .PAAK & THE FREE NATIONALS in Laneway 2018’s bill. Breaking out via multiple lauded appearances on Dr. Dre’s surprise 2016 album Compton, .Paak has emerged as one of the most talented triple threats of the decade.
The LA-based singer, songwriter and producer is a genre-bending master, effortlessly melding ’60s funk, ’70s soul, hip-hop, R&B and electronica in his own music (listen to his brilliant 2016 album Malibu) and lending his syrupy vocals to killer singles like Kaytranada’s hit ‘Glowed Up’ and Snakehips ‘Money on Me’. As one of the most prolific and hardworking artists in the biz, we’re anticipating new music very soon. .Paak is a genuine star and it is a major honour to have him and his band join us in 2018.
