According to Pharrell Williams, Tyler, the Creator’s upcoming project will be a huge leap for the Odd Future frontman. Pharrell also spoke about his book ‘Pharrell: Places and Spaces I’ve Been’ and explained what he hopes fans can get out of it.
Williams explained that he immediately set out to create a book that was more about his experiences than himself. “When I set out to do the book – when I was first presented with the opportunity, what I tried to do was instead of making the book about me I called it ‘Places And Spaces’ because I’d like to always offer my fans and my supporters a glimpse into the experiences that I’ve had,” Pharrell told MTV’s Buzzworthy.
Pharrell added that he wasn’t really interested in writing a whole book just about himself and decided instead to cobble together a series of interviews to inspire others. “Being a producer and kinda not really liking things to be all about me. I decided a very interesting take on it would be to engage someone like Hanz in a conversation where you could sort of take his interview in the book and watch ‘Dark Knight,’ listen to the music, and listen to the interview and somewhere between there find a sweet spot to deduce what it must be like to be in his mind,” said Pharrell.
Pharrell also spoke about some of the music he’s looking forward to hearing this year and explained that Tyler, the Creator could have a major album in the works. “Tyler’s new project is crazy. I heard it myself. The rhymes are comprehensive. The chorus’ are so focused on really, really pinpointed issues that people go through. And his production is just – he’s just made leaps and bounds…He’s hungry and I don’t think anyone sees that coming either,” said Pharrell.
