First Impressions: Nelly Furtado's Goes Back To Basics On New Track

Monday, March 29, 2010

Well, what do we have here? Some unexpected newness from Nelly Furtado that showcases a departure from the crackling spice of 2006's Loose, the album that brought her together with super producer, Timbaland and gave her the monster single, "Say It Right". Currently, the Canadian vocalist is gearing up to release a brand new album, titled Lifestyle, this year to follow up, 2009's Spanish language, Mi Plan.

Furtado has only hinted that she is going to evolve from what she has done on previous efforts and apply them to this upcoming set...but don't all artists say that just to mess with us? C'mon Nelly, get real, you just don't want to do Loose 2: Looser Than Loose. But that's fine by me as the latest cut from Lifestyle, "Girlfriend In This City" is quite exquisite.

The track recalls the sound that Furtado did on her criminally overlooked 2003 effort, Folklore, with it's waterfall of orchestral elements and cautious lyric delivery. It's got that real natural feel to it, and I say this because we've been so used to the clunky-clanks of Timbaland production, we kind of forgot what sound Nelly had before. So this track should refresh your memory. No due date for Lifestyle at this point, but in the meantime enjoy the fruits of this lovely track.
