The producer and N¤E¤R¤D star has previously collaborated with the band’s frontman Julian Casablancas and is desperate to team up with the US rockers again. Pharrell said: “Julian Casablancas and I collaborated for Converse with Santogold, so I’m talking to him about The Strokes’ next record. “I want it bad. I really want to do the next album. I don’t know if Julian wants me but I’d love to.”
Pharrell also revealed has been working with Fall Out Boy “on a few tracks” and is discussing a collaboration with Good Charlotte. He added: “I’ve been talking to Joel Madden from Good Charlotte. There’s a bunch of stuff that we’ve done and we’re set to do.” Pharrell’s N¤E¤R¤D bandmate, Shay Haley also has his sights set on another rock collaboration.
He said: “I wouldn’t mind N¤E¤R¤D teaming up with Jack White,(The White Stripes) I think that would be pretty dope. He’s a dope musician and a cool writer – I think a N¤E¤R¤D and Jack White collaboration could be pretty mean.”
