Nelly Furtado Releasing Fourth English-Language Album in June
Nelly Furtado, who first made a splash with “Fly Like a Bird” roughly 10 years ago, saw her last string of hits in 2006. But, it’s been five years since her Timbaland-produced hits “Promiscuous” and “Say It Right” charted, and with the exception of a Spanish-language album in 2009, Furtado has been laying low.
Until yesterday, that is, when she tweeted about a new album. Titled T.S.I. (The Spirit Indestructible), Furtado’s fourth English-language release is scheduled to hit stores on June 19, and it’s first single – “Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)” – comes out April 17 on iTunes. Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins produced “Big Hoops,” and Salaam Remi and Pharrell additionally contributed to the album.
To the press, Furtado, in describing T.S.I., said: “It has a real classic sound to it, a sound that’s really authentic, super soulful. […] I'm really excited about touring this album. We're just planning on where and when at the moment."
This week, the Whoa Nelly singer was spotted on the set for the “Big Hoops” video shoot in Los Angeles. Perhaps alluding to the overall theme of the song and video, Furtado was seen walking around on stilts. During the shoot, she tweeted: "The higher the better!"
Although T.S.I. is considered a mainstream comeback for Furtado, her last studio album was 2009’s Mi Plan, a Spanish-language release. While it performed better internationally, Mi Plan peaked at No. 39 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums. Single “Manos Al Aire” set the singer a record as the first North American artist with a non-translated song to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Latin tracks chart.
