Pharrell To Drop New Solo Album Next Year

blame it on Meka December 17, 2013

… and my inner Neptunes stan just got giddy.

After essentially running the music world this year with Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, Beyoncé, Pusha T and his own solo cuts among many others, Columbia Records Chairman/CEO Rob Stringer announced that — to the surprise of nobody — P will release a follow-up to 2006’s In My Mind next year. Says Stringer…

“When we excitedly partnered with Pharrell in January of this year, we felt it was his time again. Since then, “Blurred Lines and “Get Lucky” have defined pop music in 2013, and now we are preparing to launch Pharrell as a global solo superstar in 2014.

I mean, I don’t think that Pharrell needs Columbia’s help to be a “global solo superstar” as he already is one but… congrats.
