Over the weekend, N.E.R.D teased an impending return with cryptic adverts at Tyler, The Creator’s Flog Gnaw festival. Now, they’re back, with a brand new, RIHANNA-FEATURING track called ‘Lemon’. Try to remain calm, everyone.
The accompanying video begins with some familiar words that match N.E.R.D’s mysterious teasers: “No_one Ever Really Dies”. It might well be the name of a new full-length from Pharrell Williams’ group, but for now, ‘Lemon’ is the first taster. What a taster it is, too.
From there, it’s an all-over-the-shop-in-the-best-way onslaught of pogoing bleeps, a Rihanna rap verse, some neon-lit dancing, and the whole thing is quite frankly glorious.
Have a watch below.
