Pharrell Williams teams with Columbia Records for new album

Pharrell Williams has signed a deal with Columbia Records to release his next album.

The US star will follow up his 2006 effort 'In My Mind' next year, with the record due to be released via RCA in the UK.

He has enjoyed a fruitful 2013 as he collaborated on hit tracks with Robin Thicke and Daft Punk.

Williams also released the track 'Happy', which is due to feature on his new album.

Columbia chairman Rob Stringer commented on the deal: When we excitedly partnered with Pharrell in January of this year, we felt it was his time again. Since then, 'Blurred Lines' and 'Get Lucky' have defined pop music in 2013, and now we are preparing to launch Pharrell as a global solo superstar in 2014. 'Happy' is just the beginning."
