N.E.R.D Might Be Dropping a New Album Soon
For the last few years, Pharrell Williams has subtly dropped hints of a potential comeback for his alternative hip-hop group N.E.R.D. Last year during a Q&A at ComplexCon, Williams told the crowd that a new N.E.R.D album was in progress and would be released “When it’s time.” Though Williams has yet to set a date for an album, fans have been eagerly awaiting the groups return. They happen to be headlining ComplexCon this November.
With the recent presence of obscure billboards popping up, a website, and social media accounts all displaying, “No_One Ever Really Dies”—the meaning behind the groups N.E.R.D acronym, there’s reason the believe that something is coming. Not to mention, the same message was displayed throughout Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival monitors this past weekend.
This morning, Wiliams and Zane Lowe took to Twitter to announce some pretty big news. Both the singer-songwriter and Beats 1 DJ teased new music telling fans to tune into Beats 1 radio on Nov 1 at 9am. Lowe tagged Wiliams in a mysterious, pixilated photo of what we assume to be cover art for a new single.
