    Nelly Furtado is indestructible. The singer has revealed the title and release date of her upcoming fifth album is The Spirit Indestructible, which will be released on June 19. The album's first single "Big Hoops (Bigger is Better)," which Furtado co-wrote with Rodney Jerkins, will be released today (April 17).

    Furtado co-wrote each song on The Spirit Indestructible, which, in keeping with her musically eclectic nature, finds her working with an array of collaborators from across the musical spectrum, including hip-hop songwriter-producer Salaam Remi (Furtado's "The Night is Young," Nas), pop songwriter-producer Rodney Jerkins (Michael Jackson, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga), veteran metal producer Bob Rock (Metallica), Dutch DJ and EDM producer DJ Tiësto, rock songwriter and producer John Shanks, and Jamaican reggae producer Da Genius. A deluxe version of the album will feature several bonus tracks, including Furtado's collaborations with Fraser T. Smith (Adele), producer and Passion Pit lead singer Mike Angelakos, and a track featuring the Kenyan Boys Choir that Furtado produced herself.

    "I began writing these songs around the time I released my Spanish album Mi Plan," Furtado says. "I was in a great headspace, feeling refreshed and ready to really deliver in English again. This album is all about positivity, youth, good energy, and the relentlessness of the spirit. I want people to live this music the way we did when we wrote it. 
I want them to jump, dance, scream, laugh, cry, love, and vibe to it, and to turn it up very loud everywhere."

    The Spirit Indestructible is Furtado's first English-language studio album since 2006's double-platinum Loose, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, was certified multi-platinum in 32 countries, and sold 10 million copies worldwide.
