This month has been a bonanza for N.E.R.D fans. Following speculation about a comeback after a series of cryptic posters appeared at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival in LA, Zane Lowe confirmed the ‘hearsay’ on Beats 1 right at the start of the month kicking off an album rollout that has the music world on the edge of their seats.

Making their official comeback at ComplexCon, where they performed their upcoming new album, they’ve since released the visuals for Rhianna-featuring song ‘Lemon’ and have now announced that their new album No_One Ever Really Dies will drop ten days before Christmas. (Cough, cough.)

Seven years since the release of their last album Nothing, the group’s new album will be ready to stream from December 15th, the masterpiece will feature guest vocals from Andre 3000, Ed Sheeran, Gucci Mane, Future, M.I.A, Wale and Kendrick Lamar alongside the welcome return of Skateboard P. Take a look at the album artwork above and listen to ‘Lemon’ below.
