It’s been an eight year wait for Pharrell Williams fans but the perennial hit-maker is finally releasing a new solo album. France 24’s music critic Mark Thompson tells us what we can expect from "Girl", what Pharrell has been up to in the meantime and how this is a special shout-out to the ladies.
Also on the show: one of the artists Pharrell has collaborated with is back with his own new album. We talk about Los Angeles singer-songerwriter Beck’s new sound on "Morning Phase".
Plus we sit down with Wild Beasts as the British indie rock band release their forth record "Present Tense" this week. They tell us why they feel like outsiders and how they’re dealing with their rise up the charts.
