Nelly Furtado – Island of me (audio)

During New York Fashion Week, Canadian popstar Nelly Furtado debutes a brand new song called “Island of me”.
The song, an infectious, bouncy pop jam, is the first track confirmed to be taken from her upcoming album “The ride” which is set to drop in March 2017.

Nelly described the album as “modern pop-alternative”. It’s co-produced by John Congleton and Nelly spoke about him, saying “I write pop melodies, I’ve always written pop melodies. But John forces me to dig a little deeper and make sure that I’m coming correct with the lyrics. I was also in a really cool phase in my life where I was going through a difficult time of transition and that helped lyrically. I just had so much to write about.”

“Island of me” comes after her musical “appetizer” that was July’s “Behind your back” which won’t appear on the album.

Lyrics:

Adolescent dreams
Runnin’ in stride with me
Reason for misbehavin’
Indulgin’ all my cravings
Makin’ time for daydreamin’
And never really seein’
I sit around just teemin’
Everything losin’ meanin’

Is this the meanin’ of bein’ free?
When the only one on this island is me
Is this our one true destiny?
Everywhere I look on the sea
Are islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me

The custom of my country is to never grow up
Run away from everything ’til I get better luck
Why should I have to look and never touch
What I wanna touch, what I wanna touch, what I wanna touch

Is this the meanin’ of bein’ free?
When the only one on this island is me
Is this what we are meant to be?
Everywhere I look on the sea
Are islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me

Adolescent dreams breakin’ out of me
But the sun is comin’ and the world in front of me
Kool-Aid I drink, pour it on the street
In memory of my melancholy

Is this the meanin’ of bein’ free?
When the only one on this island is me
Is this our one true destiny?
Everywhere I look all I see
Are islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me, me, me
Islands of me
