N.E.R.D.’s ‘Nothing’ Album Pushed to September
N.E.R.D.'s upcoming album 'Nothing' has been hit with yet another delay. The highly-anticipated album has now been pushed back from a July 6 release date to September 7.
N.E.R.D. front man, Pharrell Williams has been spotted out-and-about in recent weeks, mingling with celebrities like Oprah and Naomi Campbell at the Met Costume Institute Gala and the Cannes Film Festival, but it seems like the rapper/producer might be having some trouble getting the new album together.
Back in April, Pharrell explained that the group had decided to throw out all the material they recorded so far, in favor of starting from scratch. "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," Pharrell said. "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."
The album's first single 'Hot & Fun' was released at the end of April.
