Pharrell Williams has quietly dropped a new album titled Black Yacht Rock Vol 1.. The 10-track album appears to be an ode to his hometown of Virginia, calling it a “City of Limitless Access.”

Only available to listen via the album’s website, BlackYachtRock, Pharrell releases the album without the help of any streaming platform. Those who have listened to the album might akin the release to listening to a Pharrell-only radio channel. Some of the tracks in the album include “Richard Mille,” “Caged Bird Free,” “11:11” and “Going Back to VA.” The website to listen to the album is simple. Providing all the tracks as audio recordings, each song is available for download as is the entire album as a whole. There is also the option to join the mailing list. Those who have joined will receive an ominous “Stay tuned…” message after submitting their email.

As of writing, Pharrell has not posted to his social media to promote the album. It appears to be a lucky find for those who have caught wind of the surprise release. Have a listen to the album here.
