Nelly Furtado stormed the charts in 2006 with her multi-platinum album Loose, but she’s been relatively quiet since then. Now the Canadian singer is ready to conquer pop music once again with her long-awaited fourth English album.
T.S.I. (The Spirit Indestructible), Nelly’s first album since 2009’s Spanish-language Mi Plan, will arrive just in time for summer on June 19.
Nelly announced the news on Twitter. “The Spirit Indestructible JUNE 19, 2012,” she wrote.
The first single, “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better),” was produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins and will be released to iTunes on April 17. A video is being shot this week in Los Angeles.
In addition to Jerkins, Nelly has been in the studio with producers including Salaam Remi and Pharrell.
“It has a real classic sound to it, a sound that’s really authentic, super soulful,” said Nelly of her new music.
