N*E*R*D just announced the release date for their long-awaited new album. NO_ONE EVER REALLY DIES will be available on Dec. 15 for everyone who missed its surprise ComplexCon unveiling. The trio also shared the album cover, which will certainly look nice saved to one's Apple Music library.
The album boasts N*E*R*D-worthy contributions from a variety of artists including Future and Kendrick Lamar, as well as André 3000 and Rihanna on the previously released tracks "Rollinem 7's" and "Lemon." Ed Sheeran, Gucci Mane, Wale, and M.I.A. also make appearances.
You'll find the (reordered) tracklist below and the pre-order for the album here.
1. "Lemon" f/ Rihanna
2. "Deep Down Body Thurst"
3. "Voilà" f/ Gucci Mane and Wale
4. "1000" f/ Future
5. "Don't Don't Do It!" f/ Kendrick Lamar
7. "Lightning Fire Magic Prayer"
8. "Rollinem 7’s" f/ André 3000
9. "Kites" f/ Kendrick Lamar and M.I.A.
10. "Secret Life of Tigers"
11. "Lifting You" f/ Ed Sheeran
The album marks the trio's first one in seven years, following the 2010 release of Nothing. The 10-track collection was supported by the singles "Hypnotize U" and "Hot-n-Fun" featuring Nelly Furtado.
Amazingly, we are now a mere two years away from the band's 20th anniversary, a milestone I personally hope results in a tour featuring Pharrell and company shredding through their debut, In Search Of…, in full all across the world. I couldn't possibly be the only person still obsessively listening to "Rock Star" at least once a day.
