Free Nationals are best known as Anderson .Paak’s live band, but are moving forward as their own entity. The quartet released a new single entitled 'Beauty & Essex' featuring Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Daniel Caesar.

Free Nationals have been Anderson .Paak‘s live backing band for years, and they’ll soon release a self-titled debut studio album of their very own.

This week, the group shared a new song called ‘Beauty & Essex’ featuring the vocal talents of Daniel Caesar and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Check it out above.

Guitarist Jose Rios, keyboardist Ron Tnava Avant, bassist Kelsey Gonzales and drummer Callum Conner appeared on DJ Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program on Apple Music, where they revealed their debut studio album is forthcoming.
