Pharrell makes music for the future, yet you can still hear traces of the past within the cords.

The singer/songwriter/designer is definitely a multifaceted artist. It seems everything it creates is gold. Pharrell’s latest song release comes from the soundtrack for the movie Hidden Figures.

The upcoming film is about Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, the African-American women who were behind the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit in 1962. The movie stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae. It’s set to be released on Christmas Day.

Pharrell’s song Able gives an uplifting churchy funk vibe, if you can comprehend that.

Listen to the song below.

The soundtrack for Hidden Figures is now available on iTunes.
