With 2014 un-officially dubbed ‘The Year of Pharrell’, it seems like 2015 isn’t going to be any different. After what might seem like an eternity for some, Pharrell Williams has reunited his rock/rap trio N.E.R.D to assist him in curating the soundtrack for the forthcoming Spongebob Squarepants movie.
Chad Hugo, Shay Haley and Williams feature in the new video for their single ‘Squeeze Me’, venturing deep into the depths of the ocean as animated square-panted characters. Visually, the video is trippy as hell, but it seems fitting for the feel good uptempo track.
With this being the first we’ve heard from N.E.R.D in four years, core fans will be pessimistic and question the future direction Pharrell is taking the group in. But we must remember this is a kid’s movie, and so the sounds must fit that of the theme of the film. The very fact that all three members are back in the studio together is exciting enough and hopefully this will lead to future projects.
