Listen to Pharrell's impossibly cheery 'Happy'

The song will appear on the soundtrack to the animated Despicable Me 2.

As he did for Despicable Me, Pharrell (and collaborator Heitor Pereira) will be responsible for the music of the animated sequel. The first peak at the soundtrack is ‘Happy’, which finds Pharrell in soul-throwback mode a la Mark Ronson or Janelle Monae. It’s definitely one of his more, er, animated songs.

The Despicable Me 2 soundtrack is due out on June 18, with the film to follow in July. Pharrell recently teased a host of projects in the pipeline, and he appeared on an album you might have heard of. [via Atrilli]
