The inimitable Nelly Furtado sat down with AOL Music Sessions for an intimate look at her forthcoming album The Spirit Indestructible, due out September 18th. In the in-depth interview the singer reveals details about the period between her last English record (2006’s Loose) and the recording of the new release, including her time in Africa working with Free the Children, the formation of her record label Nelstar, and how she reconnected with her creative energy. After the interview Nelly performed a selection of her recent hits like “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better),” the first single from the new album, and “Parking Lot,” another high-energy track from The Spirit Indestructible.
In addition to her AOL Session, Nelly recently stopped by Yahoo! Music for a round of acoustic performances and another one-on-one interview piece, sharing details about what keeps her creativity flowing and what’s surprised her most in her 12-year career.
Earlier this month Nelly released the official video for title track and second single “Spirit Indestructible,” which was shot in the singer’s hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia.
Nelly Furtado recently released an inspiring lyric video for her second single, “Spirit Indestructible.” The single is the title track from her much anticipated upcoming album and features Nelly’s friend Spencer West, who just finished a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro using only his hands to raise awareness and financial support for clean water projects in Africa. Impressive and certainly inspiring in and of itself, no doubt!
Nelly Furtado has just released an alternate, homemade video for her eclectic new pop hit, “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better),” filmed in a parking lot and featuring skateboarders and colored smoke bombs. The Rodney Jerkins produced club banger is the lead-off single from Nelly’s highly anticipated album, The Spirit Indestructible, due September 18th on Interscope.
Nelly Furtado performed on the Billboard Music Awards live on Sunday, from the MGM Grand in Vegas and we have the fabulous return of Nelly below. Other performers of the evening included Usher, Kelly Clarkson, Linkin Park and Justin Bieber.

Nelly Furtado has just released the official video for her brand new single, “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better),” from her highly anticipated forthcoming album, The Spirit Indestructible.
The video is directed by X (Drake, Justin Bieber) and was shot in downtown Los Angeles. And get this, it features Nelly on stilts with a performance from World Champion Native American hoop dancers. Come on, who does that?! Nelly freakin’ Furtado, that’s who!
Nelly will also be making her stage return with a performance on the Billboard Music Awards live on ABC May 20th along with Usher, Kelly Clarkson, Linkin Park and Justin Bieber. “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)” is available now on iTunes but you will have to wait for The Spirit Indestructible album until later this summer.
I am absolutely THRILLED that all these talented artists are coming back from their musical breaks.
