sits across from our Los Angeles AOL Sessions crew on a high stool, making bird noises.
The Victoria, British Columbia-born mother of two has just performed several songs from her her forthcoming fifth album, The Spirit Indestructible
, and now she's waiting for our interview to begin, looking inordinately relaxed, dangling a heeled foot.
Though the studio sometimes intimidates artists, Furtado's poise powers us through the typically vibe-killing pre-interview moments before "camera speeds" is finally announced, sticks clack and the talent's exhausted scowl shifts to an immoderate Vaseline-toothed smile.
Joseph Llanes for AOL
is currently preparing to release her fifth studio album The Spirit Indestructible
in September, collaborating with hit-makers like Salaam Remi, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins and Bob Rock, and returning with a sound which she has compared to her 2000 debut, Whoa, Nelly!
As fans anxiously await her new release, the Canadian singer-songwriter stopped by AOL Music's Los Angeles studios to perform several songs from her forthcoming LP, including her hit single "Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)." After Nelly's rousing performance, AOL Music spoke with the singer -- who was both poised and
hilarious -- about her experience volunteering in Africa, motherhood, and the responsibilities she deals with as a female artist.
Take a behind-the-scenes look at Nelly Furtado in the video below, and stay tuned for her Sessions
performance premiere, right here on AOL Music!
