Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley, tka N.E.R.D., have reunited for their first new song in four years. “Squeeze Me” appears on the soundtrack to the upcoming SpongeBob SquarePants movie. Listen in below.
Hugo discussed the song in an interview with Variety: “We’re trying not to think too much in a cartoon sense, but more just like a psychedelic, otherworldy type of thing. If you want to draw a parallel, maybe think of what the Beatles did with Yellow Submarine.”
“Squeeze Me” marks N.E.R.D.’s first offering since their 2010 album, Nothing. Last month, the group reunited on-stage at Odd Future’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles.
