Furtado Makes 'Poppy, Spooky Music' Third Time Around

She's like a bird. She's beautiful. She's also ready to release her third album. Nelly Furtado has collaborated with Pharrell and Chris Martin on Loose, her record that will hit stores in late May.

Teaming up with hip-hop producer Timbaland, Furtado says that her sound on Loose can be characterized as "punk-hop:"

"We were thinking, 'Let's do modern Eurythmics - You're Dave [Stewart] and I'm Annie [Lennox]. Let's make this modern, poppy, spooky music.' And we achieved that on some of the tracks."

Loose, produced by Nellee Hooper, will be available May 23.
