Pharrell Williams just confirmed that he will release new solo album G I R L, which will be out on March 3. Apparently, fans of the star have only a few days to wait until they will be able to get the new album.
Pharrell already announced that the album G I R L will feature the highly popular song Happy.
The famous singer said in a statement that Columbia Records were the ones who approached him with the proposal to make a new album, which was actually considered to be a great honor by the singer.
“One was the sense of overwhelming honor that I felt when I realized 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,” Pharrell said in his statement.
Pharrell is a very talented singer and producer, who has actually worked at some of the biggest hits released last year. Naturally, this includes the popular Get Lucky and Blurred Lines. After many high profile and successful collaborations, Pharrell is willing to launch his solo album.
This will be the first solo album for the star since 2006, when In My Mind was released. Pre-orders already are available for this new album, which will feature 10 tracks.
Until the release of G I R L, fans of Pharrell Williams can see their favorite artist performing at the 86th Annual Academy Awards, which are going to take place in Germany this month. Naturally, Pharrell will perform at this event his single Happy.
Happy is an amazing success. The song was created by Pharrell to be featured on the soundtrack of the successful movie Despicable Me. This is now the highest-charting Oscar-nominated song since the release of Lose Yourself, the much appreciated song by Eminem.
Happy sold in more than 2.3 million downloads all around the world, so there is no wonder that everyone expects Pharrell’s new album to be a great success. The singer already revealed the cover photo of the album, as well as 30-second trailer presenting it.
