It looks like the wait between N.E.R.D. albums could be almost over now, almost over now.
The internet is exploding with speculation that the Pharrell Williams-led rap-rock group are set to return with their first LP in eight years, based on a number of cryptic teasers.
Artwork reading “No_one Ever Really Dies” (a play on the N.E.R.D. acronym, for those playing at home) has been found splashed across the band’s website, social media pages, IRL billboards across the globe and adverts at Tyler, The Creator‘s Flog Gnaw festival this past weekend.

It comes after Pharrell first announced that a new N.E.R.D. record was in the works back in 2015. In a follow-up interview, the multi-talented rapper compared the album process to “making wine”, adding that it would arrive “when it’s time”.
Just months ago, as the group announced their first live shows in three years, Pharrell added that the comeback is “feeling really good, really special”.
We guess they…
Never really died.
N.E.R.D.’s last album was 2010’s Nothing.
We’ll bring you more news on their comeback as it develops.
