Nelly Furtado Gives “It” A Name
Nelly Furtado will follow up her smash debut, “Whoa, Nelly,” with “Folklore,” due Nov. 25 from DreamWorks. Joining the Canadian pop artist on the collection are such varied guests as Caetano Veloso, Bela Fleck, Beck collaborator Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger and Kronos Quartet.
The 12-track album will be led by the single “Powerless (Say What You Want),” which will be sent to U.S. radio outlets in early October for airplay consideration. Furtado recorded “Folklore” in Toronto and over the last two months has teased fans with lo-fi snippets of songs through messages on her official Web site.
