N.E.R.D. took the stage at ComplexCon on Saturday night and debuted their new album No_One Ever Really Dies on Day 1. It was the first time Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley have shared a stage in three years and comes on the back of their new single "Lemon" that features Rihanna.

As well as Rihanna, the 11 track album (that as yet has no release date) will feature Gucci Mane, Wale, Future, Kendrick Lamar, M.I.A., André 3000 and Ed Sheeran.

The ComplexCon show was essentially a listening party that included a stage with cars and backup dancers. Pharrell told the audience that the track "Don't Do It", which also features Kendrick Lamar, was inspired by the police shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott in September 2016.

Before "Lemon", the group's last music was three tracks for the 2014 Spongebob movie, and their last album proper was released in 2010.
