The same week Anderson .Paak confirmed signing to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment, he appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Joined by his touring band The Free Nationals (with whom Paak will perform at this year’s Roots Picnic), the MC/singer/producer/drummer broke out two goodies from last month’s Malibu release.

Playing the early single “Carry Me” (from behind the drum kit) and Dem Jointz-produced “Silicon Valley,” both songs presented vastly different than as heard on his sophomore LP—given the live band. The multi-talented Paak, however, delivered his strong messages with passion and grace.

In what is one of the year’s early favorite albums, Heads can expect many more televised appearances like these.
