The solo feature, titled G I R L, is currently available for pre-orders.
Producer, rapper and singer Pharrell Williams, the hitmaker behind last year’s Get Lucky by Daft Punk and Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke and T.I., has announced his solo album G I R L will be out next month.
Due out March 3 globally, G I R L will feature Happy, his chart-topping, Oscar-nominated single from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. No information has yet been announced about the rest of the album’s tracks.
“When Columbia Records presented me with the opportunity to make an album, three things came to mind,” says Pharrell in a statement. “One was the sense of overwhelming honour that I felt when I realised that they were interested in partnering with me on the album that I had always dreamt of making. Two, it would have to feel festive and urgent. And three, I instantly knew it would be called G I R L. I hope you like it.”
Last month Williams took home Grammy Awards for producer of the year, album of the year for Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, and record of the year as well as best pop duo/performance for Daft Punk’s Get Lucky.
Williams started his production career as one-half of The Neptunes with Chad Hugo and has since helped create hits including Nelly’s Hot In Herre, Jay-Z’s I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me), Britney Spears’ I’m A Slave 4 U and Justin Timberlake’s Like I Love You.
G I R L will be only his second solo album, following 2006’s In My Mind. — AFP Relaxnews
