Though fans have heard absolutely nothing from N.E.R.D. since 2008’s Seeing Sounds, that’s all set to change with the impending release of… uh… Nothing. See, because that’s actually the name of the LP. Anyway, the latest full-length from Pharrell, Chad and Shay is shaping up to be the perfect summer soundtrack, judging by aptly-named lead single Hot N’ Fun. Here, a hypnotic, bass-driven groove sure to get bodies moving pulses in the background as Pharrell proclaims “It’s a new day: people don’t wanna think no more, they just wanna feel. They wanna let go.” Tied together with a lushly melodic hook featuring the unmistakable vocal stylings of Nelly Furtado, this track sounds like it just might be a smash-hit in the making – what do you think, Booth readers? Those who agree can look forward to a whole lot ‘o’ Nothing come June 15, when N.E.R.D.‘s senior set hits online retailers and record stores everywhere.
