Nelly Furtado's sixth studio album, The Ride, comes out this Friday but you can now stream the entire record, and watch 11 accompanying lyric videos, exclusively on The FADER.
The Ride builds on Furtado's roots in writing clear-eyed anthems filtered through a bold pop aesthetic, but updated for 2017. Acclaimed indie rock producer John Congleton, who has worked with St. Vincent, Explosions In The Sky, Black Mountain, Erykah Badu, and more, is Furtado's co-visionary on the record.
“The Ride is my hard-knocks album where I ride in a sin confessional and celebrate my mistakes," Furtado wrote in an email to The FADER. "The equation is imperfection = beauty. This record for me is a palette cleanse, and a chance for me to showcase my songwriting with the help of John Congleton's unique and modern production style.”
