Admit it, when’s the last time you heard anything about Canadian darlin’ Nelly Furtado?  I agree, it’s been way too long.

Well the singer burst out of her self-imposed break this week with a brand new song with none other than K’Naan.  A match made in musical heaven. The song, “Is Anybody Out There” is AWESOME and it reminded me how much I missed her voice, K’Naan’s voice too, for that matter.

The song is the first release off of K’Naan’s new EP 5-track EP, “More Beautiful Than Silence”, which is out today!

Have a listen, and try to only listen to it once. Welcome back Nelly, we’ve missed you! There’s rumours of a new Nelly disc, her first in six years, that will be out in just a few months.  If this song is any indication of what we’ll be expecting, the wait will be well worth it.
