Free Nationals Announce Debut Album

It lands on December 13th...

Free Nationals have announced plans for their debut album.

The ultra-funky band are known for their Anderson .Paak association, but have been developing material of their own.

Classic funk and soul influences viewed through a 21st century hip-hop prism, the band will release a full album next month.

Self-titled, 'Free Nationals' lands on December 13th and features an array of collaborators.

The group – Kelsey Gonzalez (bass), Ron “Tnava” Avant (keyboard/vocoder), Callum Connor (drums) and José Rios (guitar) – spar with Syd on 'Shibuya', and it's a cosmic slice of groovy low-key funk.

Tune in now.
