NERD Add Member

And tell MTV News about new girl Rhea…

NERD have added a member to their line up for their next album and future live shows.

Pharrell Williams, Chad and Shae are now joined in the group by singer Rhea.
 
She’ll now appear on the band’s fourth album Instant Gratification- which will be released in 2010.
 
Speaking to MTV News in the States mainman Pharrell said: “Musically, we're just somewhere else [with her]. The music is now very 3-D. It's something you have to hear. But you'll see."
 
He continued: “The music is very three-dimensional. We're just really excited. We feel like N.E.R.D. has always been the punks of hip-hop and the outcasts of alternative music — just a little different. But this time, we're taking no prisoners."
 
Toronto native Rhea- who has a classical music background- auditioned for NERD over the internet.
 
She said: “It was just a really good time. When I came in there and I met them and they heard me sing, I think they decided it was the right fit.”
