Nelly Furtado decided to incorporate all the sounds that make her who she is, and call it ‘Folklore’, due out Tuesday (November 25). “To me, folklore is just the idea of anyone, anywhere in the world, picking up what they have around them — a guitar, a cooking pot, a turntable, whatever — making music and talking about what’s going on around them,” she tells Mary Dickie of the Toronto Sun. “I like how all-encompassing the title is. There’s folk music all over the world. If you look at my CD collection, I’d say 40% is sung in another language, so I feel like a citizen of the world. Even hip-hop is folk; that’s why it’s so popular.”
