N.E.R.D. premiered their new album in Long Beach, California last night (November 4).

The group recently revealed their first track in seven years – a collaboration with Rihanna called ‘Lemon‘.

Last night, the trio reunited on stage for the first time in three years at Long Beach’s ComplexCon festival. During the set, they aired their new record ‘No_One Ever Really Dies’ in full.

As Complex reports, the listening session saw N.E.R.D. fill the stage with real cars and groups of dancers to provide a visual spectacle as the record played. The group began the set sat in a van at the back of the stage, but both Shay Haley and Pharrell Williams later made an appearance in front of the crowd.

‘No_One Ever Really Dies’ features 11 tracks and a handful of guest appearances from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, Future, M.I.A. and André 3000. Ahead of ‘Don’t Don’t Do It’, the band’s collaboration with Lamar, Williams explained the track was written after the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina last year.

“I just know that for all those unarmed motorists that’s been killed, I know there’s a moment when they tell them to do something there must be a voice in their heads saying, ‘Don’t don’t do it’,” Williams explained.
