"We needed to align ourselves and make ourselves parallel and congruent with what society is feeling. There's a lot going on and a lot of things people don't necessarily understand. We have a Tea Party. We have conservative Democrats. We have liberals that are like neo-liberals and nothing like you thought they'd be. There's so many different hybrid sects of people and issues. So we thought why not make a timeless album that's kind of a time capsule, so 10 years from now people look at that album and go, 'I remember that era. That's when the 'Nothing' album came out.' I just wanted to make some good music that would affect people in a good way. We needed to align ourselves and make ourselves parallel and congruent with what society is feeling. The album is very '68-'72,'73, America meets Crosby, Stills & Nash meets Moody Blues. I don't sound at all like John Fogerty, it's the feeling he had when he was with Creedence Clearwater Revival...the engineering and the sound design itself was just state-of-the-art and still sounds that way. I felt if I could just make a patchwork of all those various textures I could move people. 'Hypnotize U' came at the very last minute. I bumped into Daft Punk and we hadn't worked together in almost 10 years, so we decided to do something together and it was super cool, like a magical moment out of nowhere happening in the fourth quarter." - Pharrell Williams
