The iTunes festival has London in full swing, and one of the highlights thus far has been Pharrell’s set. In addition to playing his chart-toppers (“Come Get It Bae,” “Happy”), Pharrell brought on N.E.R.D bandmate Shay Haley to perform some of the group’s classics: “Rockstar,” “Lapdance,” and “She Wants To Move.”
After the mini-set, Haley hinted towards new material. “It feels good to be back in London,” he said. “When we released our first album back in 2001 and first crossed the Atlantic, this was the first place to embrace us. You’re gonna like this shit we’re gonna release.”
N.E.R.D hasn’t put out any new material since 2010’s Nothing. Pharrell followed Haley’s hint with one of his own. “There will always be an N.E.R.D,” he said. “I’m happy to be a nerd; the bullies lost, the nerds win.” Click through the gallery above to see Haley and Pharrell together onstage.
