Canadian pop signer Nelly Furtado has revealed the title and release date of her upcoming fifth album. ‘The Spirit Indestructible’ will be released on June 19th, and the album’s first single, ‘Big Hoops (Bigger is Better)’, which Furtado co-wrote with Rodney Jerkins, is available now on iTunes.

Furtado co-wrote each song on ‘The Spirit Indestructible’, which, in keeping with her musically eclectic nature, finds her working with an array of collaborators from across the musical spectrum, including hip-hop songwriter-producer Salaam Remi (Furtado’s ‘The Night is Young’, Nas), pop songwriter-producer Rodney Jerkins (Michael Jackson, Beyonce and Lady Gaga), veteran metal producer Bob Rock (Metallica), Dutch DJ and EDM producer Tiesto, rock songwriter and producer John Shanks, and Jamaican reggae producer Da Genius. A deluxe version of the album will feature several bonus tracks, including Furtado’s collaborations with Fraser T. Smith (Adele), producer and Passion Pit lead singer Mike Angelakos, and a track featuring the Kenyan Boys Choir that Furtado produced herself.

“I began writing these songs around the time I released my Spanish album ‘Mi Plan’,” Furtado said. “I was in a great headspace, feeling refreshed and ready to really deliver in English again. This album is all about positivity, youth, good energy, and the relentlessness of the spirit. I want people to live this music the way we did when we wrote it. I want them to jump, dance, scream, laugh, cry, love, and vibe to it, and to turn it up very loud everywhere.”

The Spirit Indestructible is Furtado’s first English-language studio album since 2006’s double-platinum ‘Loose’, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, was certified multi-platinum in 32 countries, and sold 10 million copies worldwide. ‘Loose’ also spawned three hit singles, including the No. 1’s ‘Promiscuous’ and ‘Say It Right’, both of which earned Furtado Grammy Award nominations.
