N*E*R*D cause fan frenzy at intimate appearance

N.E.R.D‘s Pharrell Williams has described The Strokes as “a genius band”, after Albert Hammond Jr responded positively to his suggestions that he produce the New York group.

The producer and singer spoke at London‘s clothing boutique The Hideout, where the group were signing copies of their new album ‘Seeing Sounds’.

The store, which attracted hundreds of fans to the signing, also stocks Williams‘ clothing ranges Ice Cream and Billionaire Boys Club.

Speaking to NME.COM, Williams said: “Julian [Casablancas] and I have already worked together, of course I would be up for [producing the band].

“I would work with Julian in a heartbeat, in a heartbeat. They are a genius band, a genius band.”
