Pharrell’s Oasis dream

Pharrell Williams

Pharrell Williams wants to reunite Oasis.

Brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher formed the band in 1991 but have had a famously difficult relationship and Oasis broke up for good in 2009.

Noel now has his own band Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, while Liam is the front man of Beady Eye, but Pharrell is eager to get them back together for a collaboration.

“Who wouldn’t want to work with the Gallaghers? Yeah, both of them,” he said to BBC Newsbeat.

Pharrell has had huge success recently and his track Happy, which features in movie Despicable Me 2, is up for an Oscar, with the star also performing at the Academy Awards.

The singer and his wife Helen Lasichanh have son Rocket together, whose name was inspired by Sir Elton John’s hit Rocket Man.

“I really respect Elton John’s music and I’d love to do something with him,” Pharrell gushed.

“Contrary to popular belief, Rocket’s middle name is not Man. But Elton John’s Rocket Man song was a part of it and also Stevie Wonder’s Rocket Love. But Elton would be really interesting.

“I would love to do a whole album with Stevie Wonder. That would be amazing. He doesn’t need me, but it’d be amazing.

“We had a performance and I couldn’t believe I was on stage [with him].

“I remember listening to all his songs for the first time in my grandmother’s apartment, and then to be on stage in LA with Steve. That was like, ‘Where am I? What’s going on? Just don’t wake me up.’”

Pharrell, 40, also featured on Robin Thicke’s track Blurred Lines and Daft Punk’s Get Lucky last year, both of which hit number one around the world.

He’s still trying to take in the fact that he could be walking away with an Oscar in March.

“I’m in disbelief. I can’t believe that. All of this is an amazing moment and I just intend on showing the people my thanks,” he smiled.
