With a pairing of super producers this sweet, it’s no wonder The Neptunes and deadmau5‘s new collaboration, “Pomegranate” wears its name on its sleeve. Landing at the intersection of electro-soul, pop, and R&B, “Pomegranate” finds Pharrell delivering ultra-smooth, vocoded versework over a plucky, funk-laden deadmau5 bassline set for heavy summer airplay.
“Pomegranate,” which came together under clandestine terms in Miami during Art Basel 2019, is set to appear on deadmau5’s next album, though a title or release date for an upcoming LP have yet to be shared. Primed for everyone’s poolside playlists this summer, “Pomegranate” finds the newly revamped Neptunes meshing their ever-diversifying style with a welcomed stylistic departure from the mau5trap head honcho, coming together as an infectiously catchy crossover jam that points to more exciting new material underway from both acts in the coming months.
