N.E.R.D. teases new visual for Future-assisted “1000”

The group is gearing up for their highly anticipated return.

After previewing their long-awaited fifth studio album to an exclusive crowd at ComplexCon last month, N.E.R.D. is now just two weeks away from unveiling their latest to the world.

Most recently, to help further build anticipation for No One Ever Really Dies, which is set to drop on Dec. 15, the group has teased a new music video for their collaboration with Future.

The track, "1000," dropped earlier this week, with the new visual promising to add to its epicness.

A preview for the visual, which was released on YouTube and later taken down Saturday morning (Dec. 2), remains live both on N.E.R.D.'s and Pharrell's Twitter, with perhaps the full video being leaked prior to receiving the official go-ahead. However, from what we've seen, when it does drop, it's going to further add to N.E.R.D.'s creative output as a legendary group.

As seen as a result of the leak, during the accompanying visual, which opens with a disclaimer reading, "N.E.R.D or Columbia Records do not support or condone violence in any shape or form. We only have internet access," viewers are bombarded with a montage of intense, short clips showcasing violence, fights, protests and riots.

Additionally, the music video features a monologue from Mike Tyson, with the same dancer from the group's video for the Rihanna-assisted, "Lemon," running through a choreographed routine complete with an army, tons of red smoke and motorcycles.

Take a look at the preview in the tweets below.
