The singer/producer takes fans backstage on his video shoot
Pharrell Williams brings you behind-the-scenes as he discusses his inspiration and the meaning behind his latest powerful and sobering anthem and video for “Freedom.”
Directed by Paul Hunter, this photographic music video features Pharrell singing, dancing and fighting oppression and conformity in various locations and situations. Following in the contagious footsteps of “Happy,” Pharrell has united and liberated the world yet again.
“I want people to realize that people have the faculties to set themselves free,” Pharrell says. “Whether it is from something that is heavily oppressive, or something just as simple as needing the motivation to take a necessary step in their lives. Whatever it is, I want them to set themselves free.”
