Pharrell Williams confirms there will be a new NERD album

Album would be group's first since 2010

Pharrell Williams has confirmed that there will be another N.E.R.D record, speaking in a Twitter Q&A session.

Williams fielded questions from fans via IHeartRadio’s Twitter account on Tuesday (September 22).

During the online session, the singer was asked by one fan, “Are you going to make another N.E.R.D. album?”, to which Williams replied “OF COURSE!”.


NERD consist of Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shae Haley. They released their last album ‘Nothing’ in 2010.

Last year, Pharrell hinted at a new NERD album as he was joined onstage by NERD bandmate Shay Haley during his iTunes festival headline set at London’s Roundhouse in September.

Haley told the crowd, “It feels good to be back in London. When we released our first album back in 2001 and first crossed the Atlantic, this was the first place to embrace us. You’re gonna like this shit we’re gonna release…” Pharrell then drew the crowd’s attention to the fact that Haley had mentioned new material. “There will always be an NERD,” he said. “I’m happy to be a nerd; the bullies lost, the nerds win”.

Pharrell Williams recently shared his video for new single ‘Freedom’. The track, Pharrell’s first new solo offering since 2014’s ‘G I R L’ album, peaked at Number 36 on the UK’s Official Singles Chart.
