Nelly’s latest album, The Ride – her first in five years – is a jump back to the quirky folk-pop that made her name, and chronicles her struggle to find herself again. This album is all realisations, she explains. I didn’t wanna be surrounded by bullshit anymore; I want to demand truth from the people around me and from myself. It’s about dreams not always matching up to reality and coming out of the other side. Furtado passionately believes that the key to a more harmonious world is empathy. I have a song on the new album, Sticks and Stones, which was the only song I didn’t write on the album. It’s written by Mark Taylor, who also wrote, the song I did with James Morrison a while back. I thought it was beautiful, and I flew to England to record it.
