Gwen and Pharrell sat down behind-the-scenes on The Voice during the Live Playoffs to talk about her new single “Spark The Fire” and the strong message behind it.
She tells the story of how the single came out by being on The Voice and how they pair worked on it over several recording sessions in Los Angeles, New York and Miami.
Pharrell on “Spark The Fire”, “It is a more positive take on torches of freedom. Whether it’s a lighter, whether it’s the light in your heart, the luminescence of your optimism… whatever that light is within the female species on this planet, I feel like the female species have been suppressed long enough. We owe them a lot more respect and ‘Spark The Fire’ is kind of like Gwen saying, ‘Enough’s enough. Who’s got the lighter? Let’s spark the fire.'” Pharrell calls the song “bigger than feminism” and says he so proud to be apart of it with Gwen.
“Spark The Fire” will be available everywhere on Monday and the pair will also debut the song with a live performance on The Voice, too.
