Pharrell Delivers the Funk on “Able”
Pharell releases his newest record off the soundtrack to the upcoming film Hidden Figures. Today (Dec. 2), he releases “Able,” a funky tune that will make N.E.R.D. fans wish for a new album.
"Don't you know that we're able?/Let alone makes us major/We can now sit at the table/Letting go in his favor," he sings on the hook. Listen to "Able" above.
Serving as composer and producer for the Hidden Figures soundtrack, Pharrell constructed the perfect 10-song project for the movie. He previously released “Crave,” “Runnin” and “Surrender” featuring Lalah Hathaway. The soundtrack is available for pre-order on iTunes right now. Peep the tracklist below.
