Exclusive: Nelly Furtado’s New Album The Spirit Indestructible Connection To Jamaica

Nelly Furtado’s new album “The Spirit Indestructible” drops tomorrow  September 18, 2012. This album is the much anticipated follow-up to her 2009′s Billboard number1 Spanish language album “Mi Plan”, and Furtado’s 2006 multi platinum album “Loose” which positioned her a spot among the pop elite. Now back with “The Spirit Indestructible” Nelly Furtado looks to reclaim her place on the pop charts with a solid album filled with catchy hooks, synth-driven beats, and pop melodies.

So you are wondering what is the connection between Jamaica and the new album?

Well Nelly spent some time in Jamaica writing songs for “The Spirit Indestructible”. One spot that Nelly loved writing at was ‘Screechies’ at Hellshire Beach, which she says is the must stop place to go to when in Jamaica.
