Arty-Fact: N.E.R.D. (a backronym of No-one Ever Really Dies) is an American hip hop and rock band formed in Virginia Beach, Virginia, in 1999.
Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo were signed by Teddy Riley to Virgin Records as a duo, The Neptunes. After producing songs for several artists throughout the late 1990s, the pair formed the band with Shay Haley as a side project of The Neptunes in 1999.
N.E.R.D.'s debut album, In Search Of..., sold 603,000 copies in the United States and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It was also awarded the second annual Shortlist Music Prize. The band's second album, Fly or Die, sold 412,000 copies in the United States but shipped at least 500,000 units, certifying it Gold.
In 2005, N.E.R.D. ended their contract with Virgin and disbanded. Three years later, the band reunited under Star Trak Entertainment, a subsidiary of Interscope Records established by Williams and Hugo. The band's third album, Seeing Sounds, was released in 2008 followed by Nothing in 2010.
N.E.R.D. began promotion in October 2017 after a period of silence following their 2010 album. Their new album was titled No One Ever Really Dies. The group released the first single for the album, "Lemon", in early November. Released in December 2017, the album collaborates with multiple artists, including Kendrick Lamar, André 3000, M.I.A., Future, Wale, Gucci Mane, Rihanna, and Ed Sheeran.
"This was for a BLAG cover, not the first time we had worked with the band. Our good friends who ran Elms Lesters Painting Rooms were kind enough to allow us to use their space, one of the city's favourite creative places. It was a real pleasure to host Chad, Pharrell and Shay. Everyone had a great time." ~ Sally A. Edwards
