The summer season is quickly approaching and Pharrell is looking to keep things hot on the music front. Having recently been featured on Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”, the 40-year-old musical impresario is showing no signs of stopping. He has his hands in many creative projects, notably producing the “Despicable Me 2″ soundtrack along with composer Heitor Pereira.
Pharrell offers us the first single off the soundtrack named “Happy”; a solo track that captures the mood of the upcoming summer months. Musically, the song takes note from rock & roll and soul compositions and melodies from yesteryear, featuring a cool drum line and crisp vocal melodies.
The “Despicable Me 2″ soundtrack will be released on June 18th, and the animated film hits theaters July 3rd.
