New Music: N.E.R.D. lead a dance-ready riot on "1000" featuring Future

A spacey beat, marching band-like groove, and some skittering synths.

Since N.E.R.D. announced their return with the upcoming No One Ever Really Dies, we've heard the Rihanna-assisted lead single "Lemon," the since-deleted Andre 3000 collaboration, "Rollinem 7's," and a bit of "Don't Don't Do It" (but without Kendrick Lamar's promised verse).

Now, before the LP's December 15 release, the trio has shared their collaboration with Future, "1000."

Over a spacey and percussive beat, a megaphoned Pharrell sounds as if he's leading a robot riot before Future delivers his Auto-Tuned verse over a marching band-like groove. The song then shifts into lighter fare with skittering synths fit for dancing.

"You surrounded, dawg, come on look around / I was zen, but no not now / Holy shit it's working, no more trail of tears / Holy shit it's working, the prophecy is here / Holy shit it's working, we're wreckin' this bih / Holy shit it's working, one thousand percent."
