The episode will see the singer writing a town anthem for Springfield

Pharrell Williams will appear as a special guest in an episode of The Simpsons next month.

As Entertainment Weekly report, it will be Williams’ first cameo on the show, with the singer set to play a version of himself in an episode entitled ‘Walking Big & Tall’. The episode will see Williams “offer to write a new anthem for the town”.

According to the report, the episode is “based on the true story about a Milwaukee TV station in the 1980s hiring a composer to write a city-pride song, and he ended up shopping the same song to other cities”.

Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg recently announced that he will release his Pharrell Williams-produced new album ‘Bush’ in March.

The record will feature contributions from Stevie Wonder, Charlie Wilson and more, with Snoop stating: “It’s a great record me and Pharrell did from top to bottom. It feels good and I’m happy to be back in the studio working with one of my favourite producers and homeboys. It’s different – it’s completely different than anything we’ve ever done. It feels good, sounds good, looks good.”

Williams added: “Snoop’s album is better than mine. You’re gonna bug out from the approach and what we did”.
