Thank the Lord and bow before the Gods: Nelly Furtado has confirmed a release date for her new album.
The last we heard from this Canadian songstress was 2009's Spanish-speaking album Mi Plan, released to only a muted response in Australia, and prior to that 2006's 10-million selling Loose. Finally news has emerged that Furtado's fifth album will be released on May 25.
Producers working on the album, titled Lifestyle, are said to include Ryan Tedder (Beyonce, OneRepublic), Tiesto, Salaam Remy (Amy Winehouse) and long-term collaboraotor Timbaland.
Speaking of the album last year, Furtado told Portugese publication IOL of the direction she was heading in:
"It's going to be pop, but I want it to have a more light energy. Sort of like my first album, but not sonically, more in a spiritual sense… more like my first album [Whoa, Nelly!]."
With Furtado's penchant for creating perfect pop anthems, we can't wait for this one. Let the countdown begin!
