Nelly Furtado is back!
The “Promiscuous” girl surprised fans with her new single “Islands Of Me”. The track will be one of many on the Deluxe Edition of the singer’s sixth studio album “The Ride”.
Her latest album will be her first in over four years. She spilled the details of her new project in an interview with i-D: “It’s interesting, the influences on the new record — the album is called ‘The Ride’. I made it in Dallas, Texas, and Dallas, Texas has a sound… I would call the sound of the album modern pop-alternative. I write pop melodies, I’ve always written pop melodies.
The 37-year-old Canadian also got a little help on the record from producer John Congleton: “John forces me to dig a little deeper and make sure that I’m coming correct with the lyrics. I was also in a really cool phase in my life where I was going through a difficult time of transition and that helped lyrically. I just had so much to write about. I think I grew as a songwriter on this album.”
“The Ride” drops in March 2017.
