Pharrell Teases ‘Gust of Wind’ Video With Daft Punk

Filmmaker Edgar Wright directed the upcoming video from the “Get Lucky” collaborators

The talents behind Rolling Stone‘s Best Song of 2013 will soon reunite for another single as Pharrell Williams shared a snippet of the upcoming music video for the Girl cut “Gust of Wind” featuring Daft Punk. In the 30-second teaser clip, the singer, wearing what could be a Park Ranger hat, walks slowly through a forest when he stumbles upon two boulder-sized monoliths that are sculpted to resemble Daft Punk’s famed helmets, suggesting that “the Robots” might be heavily involved in this video with a sci-fi vibe.

The teaser also reveals that Edgar Wright, the filmmaker behind Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim Versus the World, will direct the “Gust of Wind” clip. No premiere date was revealed other than the video is “Coming soon…” Surprisingly, Williams’ “Gust of Wind” tease comes just days after the Neptunes producer unveiled the anime music video for Girl closer “It Girl.” That video featured animation by designer Takashi Murakami, the artist behind Kanye West’s “Good Morning” and the Graduation album cover.

“Gust of Wind” marks Pharrell’s third collaboration with the French dance duo. The Voice judge previously appeared on a pair of tracks on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, “Lose Yourself to Dance” and the Grammy-dominating megahit “Get Lucky.” The single, which also featured Chic great Nile Rodgers, topped the charts in 55 countries, sold nearly 10 million copies, and took home the coveted Record of the Year Grammy.

Williams will embark on a brief European tour starting October 6th before returning stateside in time for the live rounds of The Voice. The producer is also reportedly working with fellow Voice judge Gwen Stefani on new music.
