Photos by Charles Reagan Hackleman. Hans Zimmer brought out the one and only Pharrell Williams at Coachella. Wearing white shades and a pastel yellow sweatshirt to perform “Freedom,” Pharrell concluded his cameo by bowing down in admiration for Zimmer, who then took to the mic to do the same for Williams: “This guy is the most gracious brother I have ever had. This guy lights up the world with peace and love and freedom.”

Pharrell Williams is the king of Coachella. The “Happy” singer brought his sense of style and swagger to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival with an impressive group of famous friends that joined him during his second set of the festival. Pharrell, along with his now signature Vivienne Westwood hat, brought a lot of excitement to a crowd of 60,000 or more.
According to reports Pharrell Williams performed his set to a packed field, with fans screaming and pushing their way closer to get a view of the “Happy” singer. While some fans climbed on to hay stacks for an elevated view, others seemed thrilled to just be in the midst of the Grammy award winning artist.
For his set Pharrell played crowd pleasers in addition to other popular songs. T.I. joined Pharrell on “Blurred Lines”, Pusha T. came in for “Grindin”, and Busta Rhymes lent a hand with a surprise appearance by R&B singer Usher for an oldie but a goodie, “U Don’t Have To Call.” During the last song the singer, along with Pharrell and friends encouraged the audience to participate in a sing a long.

“I was just in Boston (Pray for Boston) speaking for Berklee’s YouTube hack day and had an amazing time. Went out on the town with my 2 best friends, then it was back to cali cali cali to work with the amazing ThreadSence and head over to Coachella, which will be on another day in the life segment for CLEVVERTV, so keep an eye out for it!!” – Alyssa Bernal
Daft Punk broadcasted a new trailer for their forthcoming album, “Random Access Memories,” on the main stage jumbotrons right before the Yeah Yeah Yeahs took the stage for their 8:40pm set. The two-minute video features footage of the duo playing guitar and drums alongside vocalist Pharrell Williams and famed Chic co-founder Nile Rodgers on a funky, disco-tinged song ‘Get Lucky‘, the album’s lead single. The video caused more excitement that many of the bands playing live across the festival’s six-stages, re-igniting rumours and raising hopes that the French duo might just make an in-the-flesh appearance on-stage before Coachella closes its gates on Sunday.

That tune is just wonderful, can’t wait to hear the full tune and according to the official Tracklist to the album, the tune will be 8min18sec long. Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo – were in fact standing in civilian garb on the edge of the VIP section, watching themselves on the screens with delight. (Pharrell was standing nearby, and he gave Thomas a high five afterwards.) When the screens went black, Thomas and Guy-Manuel were shown tweets from attendees giddy about what they’d just seen. Thomas grinned. “The fun part will be seeing the footage people shot when it hits the Internet,” he said.
The tune is actually 5 years old and has been made back in 2008. “We were at a party for Madonna’s last album,” Pharrell recalls, “and I was like, You guys should have produced this! Why did that not happen? Madonna and the robots would have been unbelievable! They were like, We’re working on something. I said, Whatever you do, call me – I’ll play tambourine on it. They looked at each other and they were like, We’ll be in touch.” Pharrell wound up singing on “Get Lucky” and a stomping disco track called “Lose Yourself To Dance.” I’ve managed to make an Edit of the Three different Live Versions, you can check out the tune below. Daft Punk’s new single “Get Lucky” will debut this coming Monday, April 15. Random Access Memories touches down on Earth on May 21.
