K'naan and Nelly Furtado

Video: K’naan f/ Nelly Furtado – ‘Is Anybody Out There?’

K’naan and Nelly Furtado reach out a hand in the video for “Is Anybody Out There?” their uplifting collaboration off K’naan’s EP More Beautiful Than Silence. The Canadian stars shine a spotlight on anyone who’s ever felt alone in the dark Chris Robinson-directed clip.

“I was thrilled when he asked me to do it ’cause when he sent the song to me, I just loved it immediately,” said Nelly, who will release her new album T.S.I. this summer. “I just think it’s a very hopeful and sweet, pure song about emotions that everybody feels every day of their lives. We always want to feel like we’re a part of something and that we’re not alone.”

K’naan has set a May 1 release date for his next album Country, God or The Girl, which will feature collaborations with Bono, will.i.am, Nas, and Keith Richards.
