Pharrell Williams says the band are still a going concern…

N.E.R.D have rejected (their own) recent suggestions that they have split up.

Comments from frontman and Neptunes producer Pharrell Williams appeared to suggest he was calling time on the band.

Williams told Radio 1. “I’m just not happy so therefore N.E.R.D is expired.” However the band’s manager Loic Villepontoux has issued a statement from the star backtracking on those comments.

N.E.R.D is still very much a band,” said Williams in the statement. “We are playing a show together in Japan in two weeks. And we continue to appreciate the support from all our fans.”
