Just because Nelly Furtado has a greatest hits compilation hitting shelves in November doesn't mean she's taking a break from recording new material!
The singer revealed that she's about halfway through her new album, Lifestyle, which is due out in 2011!
"I'm a little bit picky, so I'm kind of going through all kinds of material. There's new material I'm writing and old material that's…very good and hasn't been re-approached. For me it's about sharing moments of my songs with fans, so whatever are the best moments will end up on the album, I guess. I think that from singing the Spanish album I've learned a new confidence as a vocalist. And I think there's a little bit more of an alternative influence on this new album, kind of how my first album was definitely inspired and partially influenced by 'alternative' music. I've been listening to a lot of new music, everything from Janelle Monae, The xx, Florence + the Machine. It's definitely inspired by a lot of the new music that's coming out right now."
AMAZING! She's being inspired by a lot of fantastic musicians!
We cannot wait to hear what this new album sounds like, and thankfully, the three new tracks on The Best of Nelly Furtado will hold us over until Lifestyle is released!
Gurl knows how to do it RIGHT! LOLs!
