Nerd struggled to find a new sound

By | Published on Wednesday 7 April 2010

Pharrell Williams has said that NERD scrapped most of the tracks they came up with for their forthcoming new album, the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Seeing Sounds’, because they couldn’t come up with a sound they were happy with. Luckily, both for the band and all you ladies out there, they eventually found one.

Williams told WENN: “We scrapped 27 records because they weren’t good enough, they sounded great – but what were they saying? So we went back in [to the studio] and just focused on feeling. It’s almost like we did this whole entire album with our eyes closed, not because it was that easy but because it was that important to reconnect to what we feel and I would say this album is like scrapping everything and starting with nothing”.

He added: “The music has been especially tuned in frequencies to speak to women. Women will literally feel this. We are doing some other next level experimentation with this music… and it’s the sexiest thing that I could ever give to a woman”.
