Nelly Furtado is celebrating today’s release of The Spirit Indestructible by premiering the video for “Parking Lot,” the latest single and a fan favorite from the highly-anticipated new album. Inspired by late-night hangouts with friends in her hometown of Victoria, BC, the video features a lot full of custom cars, decked-out dancers, and plenty of swagger from the inimitable singer.
Furtado’s fifth album The Spirit Indestructible (iTunes) also features standout tracks like “Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)” and the inspirational “Spirit Indestructible,” both of which were produced by friend and collaborator Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins. Inspired by a period of self-discovery after the success of Latin Grammy-winning Spanish album Mi Plan, Nelly divulged that nostalgia and spirituality are the main themes of the record.
“All of these songs have incredible meaning to me and were written in moments of intense personal growth,” Nelly explained. “I…found a new freedom within my voice and an overwhelming sense of excitement about making pop music.”
