Pharrell Williams

Just days after debuting his anime video for “It Girl,” Pharrell Williams shares a teaser for “Gust of Wind” featuring Daft Punk. Clad in his park ranger hat, the Neptunes hitmaker strolls through the woods where he comes across two giant boulders in the shape of the Robots’ helmets. The cinematic visuals were directed by filmmaker Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim Versus the World).

It’s unknown when the video will premiere, but the 30-second clip teases “Coming soon…”

“Gust of Wind” marks the third collaboration between Pharrell and the French duo. They previously collaborated on the hits “Get Lucky” and “Lose Yourself to Dance” for Daft Punk’s Grammy-winning album Random Access Memories.

In between dates on his European tour, Pharrell has been in the studio with fellow “Voice” coach Gwen Stefani for her upcoming solo album.
