Considering N.E.R.D will be performing at this year’s ComplexCon in Long Beach, California, it only makes sense that they are about to release something new. Several months back Williams hinted at the possibility of a new N.E.R.D album during an interview with BBC 1.
In other related news, Williams was recently named Chief Creative Officer of UK startup ROLI, where he will “develop revolutionary new musical instruments that are iconic, digitally connected, and accessible to all.” The partnership will be long-term, with Williams investing in the company and as well as serving as a co-owner.
“Music touches all of us, and for a long time I’ve been passionate about finding ways to share the power of music with more people,” Williams said in a statement. “When I met Roland and ROLI, I immediately felt we were working towards exactly the same goals, and so I’m super excited that we’re kicking off this partnership.”
