Album: NO_ONE EVER REALLY DIES (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Pharrell Williams asks what might happen if everyone came together in one moment to see what death felt like.

    "It's this daring notion that maybe we could achieve peace and a couple of other really amazing things if all at once every human being on the planet put their hands up in the air, you know, like just for a minute to just see what death felt like," he explained to Zane Lowe during a Beats 1 interview. "What would the energy be like? Nobody would be being killed at that moment... What would that life be like if we could get everybody in to put their hands in the air at one time?"
