EW Hollywood Insider reports that N.E.R.D. is ready to drop a new album in late June on Star Trak titled Seeing Sounds (in reference to a neurological phenomenon called Synesthesia). The band drew inspiration from the idea of seeing the music.
This is their first album since 2004’s Fly or Die. So what took Pharrell, Chad, and Shay so long? Pharrell says he was “just waiting for the right sounds,” comparing making music to going fishing. “You fish for it every day, and either you get it or you don’t,” he said. “And sometimes I have to wait. What I usually do with the N.E.R.D. albums is we wait a lot.”
You can catch N.E.R.D. on Kanye West’s Glow in the Dark tour and on their own club tour.
