In a Q&A session during an appearance on iHeartRadio, Pharrell has basically confirmed that there will be more N.E.R.D. in the future – specifically, an album.

The exchange, a couple of tweets, went as follows:

There have been rumours of a fifth full-length album ever since the N.E.R.D. reunited to create a song for The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water soundtrack, 'Squeeze Me' – remind yourself of that below.

Maybe he's got his old band on the brain: last month he played an unreleased N.E.R.D. song called 'Locked Away' on his Beats 1 show.
