N.E.R.D. Unveils Sunglasses Line As Comeback Rumors Swirl
(AllHipHop News) N.E.R.D. has unveiled a line of sunglasses amid rumors the group is to drop a new album.
The band, which is comprised of Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley, last released music in November 2010 when they launched their fourth studio album entitled Nothing.
While Pharrell confirmed N.E.R.D. were working on new music back in 2015, the trio has dropped their biggest hint to date that they are readying for a return by partnering with Illesteva on a range of sunglasses.
The N.E.R.D. for Illesteva collection features black oversize frames with the choice of four different lens colors, including black and pink. Each pair is embedded with a USB drive, with the designs set to officially launch at ComplexCon on 4 November, according to WWD.
N.E.R.D. last performed live in 2014, but they are set to reunite for a headline appearance at ComplexCon in Long Beach, California.
Over the last couple of weeks, a number of posts on social media with the message "No-One Ever Really Dies" - the meaning of N.E.R.D - have emerged, causing fans to speculate that more tunes are on the way.
Rumors were also sparked during Tyler, The Creator's recent Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles when the words also flashed across screens at the event.
And while Pharrell wouldn't be drawn on any specific plans during an interview with the BBC last February, he stated that N.E.R.D. was "feeling really good, really special."
The group first formed in 1999, though Pharrell, 44, has focused on solo music, film and fashion projects of late, including releasing album Girl in 2014 and acting as one of the producers on the movie "Hidden Figures."
