Nelly Furtado is finally back with some brand new music titled “Islands Of Me” and you can have your first listen here!
The track is set to be included on the Deluxe Edition of the 37-year-old singer’s upcoming album The Ride, which is set to be released later this year.
“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,” Nelly told i-D. “John Congleton produced the entire record. He’s got an incredible resumé. I met him through Annie Clark of St. Vincent. He produced all four of her albums. I would call the sound of the album modern pop-alternative. I write pop melodies, I’ve always written pop melodies. But 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.”
