/ December 17, 2013

Pharrell Williams celebrates yet another win in his already banner year. The Grammy-nominated singer/ producer/ songwriter has signed on to Columbia Records and is already gearing up for his label debut, slated for a 2014 release.

The partnership follows his massive success from contributing to the year’s most viral hits, including Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” Daft Punk “Get Lucky” and his own “Lucky.”

“When we excitedly partnered with Pharrell in January of this year, we felt it was his time again,” says Columbia Records Chairman/CEO Rob Stringer. “Since then, ‘Blurred Lines’ and ‘Get Lucky’ have defined pop music in 2013, and now we are preparing to launch Pharrell as a global solo superstar in 2014. ‘Happy’ is just the beginning.”

His happy-go-lucky single, featured on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, also boasts the world’s first 24-hour music video and will be featured on his Columbia Records’ LP.
