Anderson .Paak’s live band, The Free Nationals, has a life of its own. The collective, consisting of Jose Rios (guitar), Kelsey Gonzales (bass), Callum Connor (drums) and Ron Tnava Avant (keyboard), teased its self-titled debut album recently, and the first single from that album has now arrived.

The single, “Beauty & Essex”, features Daniel Caesar and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and the album from which it comes will also feature Syd, Kali Uchis, Chronixx, and the late Mac Miller. Listen to the single below, and see how the band fares without their famous frontman.

.Paak himself just returned with the single “Tints” featuring Kendrick Lamar, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra is set to release its new album, IC-01 Hanoi, later this month.
