Ladies and gentlemen, Nelly Furtado is back in our lives. The multi-platinum global superstar has announced her brand new album, titled The Spirit Indestructible, will be released mid June.
The first single, 'Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)', is out now, and spoiler alert, it's not about hula hoops or the NZ Breakers, it's about her hoop earrings.
Furtado co-wrote each song on The Spirit Indestructible, which, in keeping with her musically eclectic nature, finds her working with an array of collaborators from across the musical spectrum. These include hip-hop songwriter-producer Salaam Remi (Furtado’s 'The Night is Young', Nas), pop songwriter-producer Rodney Jerkins (Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Lady Gaga), veteran metal producer Bob Rock (Metallica), Dutch DJ and EDM producer Tiesto, rock songwriter and producer John Shanks, and Jamaican reggae producer Da Genius.
The Spirit Indestructible is Furtado’s first English-language studio album since 2006’s double-platinum Loose, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, was certified multi-platinum in 32 countries, and sold 10 million copies worldwide.
It's good to have you back, Nelly.
The Spirit Indestructible is released mid June.
