N.E.R.D.’s Pharrell Williams recently discussed his group’s upcoming Nothing album and compared it to works by renowned film director Quentin Tarantino.
Pharrell also talked about the project’s motivation.
“Working on the [Despicable Me animated movie] score actually helped me for my new N.E.R.D. album, Nothing. It comes out September 7th. That really prompted me because of the learning experience I got working at Hans Zimmer‘s compound. It was pretty amazing! There were so many sounds and so many different directions. It was just really interesting…I’d probably compare it to a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack–probably Reservoir Dogs. You’ve just got to hear it, man. It’s in the spirit of the late ’60s, early ’70s. You know, revolution! It’s definitely the next step up from Seeing Sounds.” (Artist Direct)
The album was recently pushed back from an early to late summer release.
Thats what I call a muthaf*cking push back… *punches wall*. N*E*R*D. – Nothing (2010) (September 7) Producers & Guests: Ben & Ted (aka Mansions On The Moon), Yelawolf, Kenna, Nelly Furtado… Confirmed Tracks: – Hot & Fun feat.

If you were planning to bump some new N.E.R.D. at your Fourth of July barbecue, you’ll have to wait. The trio’s album has been delayed three weeks. Nothing, the fourth effort from Pharrell,Chad, and Shae, is now set to arrive on July 6, Rap-Up.com has learned. It was previously scheduled for a June 15 release. (Rap-Up)
Recently, Pharrell opened up about the project being more geared toward a female audience.
“This album, I think, is made for the women who like to take a load off and feel,” Pharrell said in an interview. “This album is all about feeling. We made the first three albums, there was a lot of thought put into it. But this album, I feel we put a lot more feeling into it. There is thought, but there’s more feeling…I feel like did what we set out to do on the first album which is to have a lot of fun and give people music that they could feel because I feel music is in a wonderful place right now. It’s changing — it’s feel good music — there’s also the wars and I just think people are tired of thinking about that type of stuff all day long and they just want to go back to feeling so they can remember who they are, but, we just want to talk to the girls…” (Total KISS TV)
