Nelly Furtado's album release pushed back

Nelly Furtado's fans will have to wait a little longer to hear her new album after its release date was set back three months.

The Spirit Indestructible was due to hit shelves on 19 June (12) but it will now be available for purchase on 18 September (12).


A statement from Nelly Furtado's publicist reads, "Nelly Furtado has decided to move the release date of her new album, The Spirit Indestructible, to accommodate both U.S. and international promotion schedules through the summer. The album is now scheduled for release on September 18."


Nelly Furtado would have faced stiff competition with her original release date - fellow Canadian Justin Bieber is scheduled to drop his latest effort Believe next month (Jun12).
