After the release of their track “Lemon” featuring a rapping Rihanna, N.E.R.D. took to the stage at this weekend’s ComplexCon to debut their forthcoming album called No_One Ever Really Dies. Their appearance marked the first time that Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley have shared a stage in three years.
Although N.E.R.D.’s ComplexCon show was a listening party, it was anything but low-key, with backup dancers and a stage set-up with cars. Pharrell also announced that their new track “Don’t Don’t Do It” with Kendrick Lamar was inspired by the police shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott in September 2016. Check out the footage below.
In addition to Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar, their new album is set to feature Future, Gucci Mane, André 3000, Ed Sheeran and more. A release date has not yet been announced for No_One Ever Really Dies. Peep the full tracklist below.
