Nelly Furtado may be content to let her new single ‘Big Hoops’ bounce its way into the public arena, yet it seems its housing album ‘The Spirit Indestructible’ requires more crafting, for it has been pushed back globally.
Details after the jump…
Originally set for a June 17th release, the LP (Furtado’s first mainstream effort in six years) will now arrive on September 11th.
While most delays spell problems for a project, this looks to be exactly what the comeback dr ordered. For, with ‘Big Hoops’ not necessarily setting the charts ablaze (despite the favour it’s found critically), it’s clear more time is needed to re-introduce Furtado to the music-buying mass; most of whom were single digit ages when ‘Promiscuous’ and ‘Maneater’ were slaying oh so viciously on the charts. A “mass”, furthermore, who’d view the likes of ‘I’m Like A Bird’ and ‘Turn Off The Lights’ as ancient.
Fans eager to see Furtado in action sooner needn’t fret, though. She’s set to perform at this Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards 2012.
