Pharrell Confirms Fifth N.E.R.D Album: “When the Time Is Right”
N.E.R.D.'s first album since 2010 is on the horizon
Outside of the brilliant work Pharrell has done as a multi-genre producer, hit-maker, solo artist and fashion icon, part of his legend can be found in N.E.R.D, the alt-rock/alt-pop band he birthed in 2002, known best for its first two albums, In Search Of… and Fly Or Die.
Yesterday, during Pharrell and HBO music exec Scott Vener’s live broadcasting of their Beats1 Radio show, #OTHERTone from #ComplexCon in Long beach, an announcement was made that sent excitement through every nook and cranny of N.E.R.D’s fan base. After being asked of the existence of a fifth N.E.R.D album, the group’s first since 2010, Pharrell responded favorably.

Naturally, little details followed the confirmation, but it’s certainly something to look forward to. Several artists who cite N.E.R.D as personal influences, like Tyler The Creator, would have a chance to work with the group for the first time. It’ll be interesting to see with whom Pharrell and Friends decide to collaborate.
