Pharrell Williams, Johnny Greenwood and Blood Red Shoes lead this week's new album releases (March 3).

Williams' first solo album since 2006 features the Number One single 'Happy' as well as guest appearances from Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys and Daft Punk. Daft Punk, who recruited Pharrell to work on their 2013 album 'Random Access Memories', appear on a song titled 'Gust Of Wind' while Cyrus contributes vocals to 'Come Get It Babe'.

Meanwhile, Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood has teamed up with Bryce Dessner of The National to release a split album of orchestral compositions. The LP, entitled 'St. Carolyn By The Sea'/'Suite From There Will Be Blood' will feature Dessner's 2011 work 'St. Carolyn By The Sea' (on which his brother, The National's Aaron Dessner, plays electric guitar), 2012's 'Lachrimae' and 2007's 'Raphael' alongside Greenwood's There Will Be Blood score.

Blood Red Shoes also return with their fourth album, the self-titled follow-up to their 2012 effort 'In Time To Voices.' Talking previously about the new material, drummer and singer Steve Ansell said: "For this album we packed up all our stuff, got in a van and drove to Berlin, where we lived for months in a rented studio space. No producer, no engineer, no A&R people, just us two in a big concrete room in Kreuzberg, jamming and recording our songs whenever we wanted, how we wanted with nobody to answer to except ourselves. It came out as our rawest, heaviest, sexiest and most confident sounding record so far."

Elsewhere, there are new albums from Ava Luna, The Men, We Are Scientists, Rick Ross and Linda Perhacs while Eagulls, Nothing and Rainy Milo release their debut albums.
