Pharrell struck platinum when he recorded the Oscar-nominated mega-hit “Happy” for the Despicable Me soundtrack. Now, he is teaming up with his former N.E.R.D brethrens Chad Hugo and Shay Haley to see if he can create more magic for another children’s movie.
The three-man band is working on music for the Spongebob Squarepants: Sponge Out Of Water soundtrack and last night (Dec. 25) their track “Squeeze Me” was leaked.
With Pharrell lacing the upbeat production with his effortlessly cool vocals, “Squeeze Me” has island vibes and a cheery feel that’s fit for the children.
“We’re trying not to think too much in a cartoon sense but more just like a psychedelic, otherworldy type of thing,” Hugo told Variety. “If you want to draw a parallel, maybe think of what the Beatles did with Yellow Submarine.”
“Squeeze Me” will be released officially on Jan. 5th but for now lend your ear to the track below.
