Nelly Furtado and Metro have come together to release a brand new, completely re-worked version of Furtado’s song “Sticks And Stones” from her 2017 album The Ride. The Sticks and Stones re-release is available today, Friday, May 25th on Radikal Records in North America. Produced by Metro, the re-release includes the new version of “Sticks And Stones” featuring re-recorded vocals by Nelly Furtado, and Metro’s remixes.
Metro’s brand new version of “Sticks And Stones” came about when Nelly flew to London to collaborate on material for her last album. She loved their fresh new take on “Sticks And Stones”, and recorded her vocal on it then and there. While Metro’s new take on “Sticks And Stones” contrasts that of the production on The Ride- a fun, lighthearted indie pop romp tangled with crunchy synths- Metro’s production on Furtado’s song re-invigorates the song with a driving house beat and electronic synths that take “Sticks And Stones” back to the 90’s dance era.
International Canadian recording artist Nelly Furtado first made her impression on the music industry in 2003 with her breakthrough album Whoa Nelly!, featuring her hit songs “I’m Like A Bird” and “Turn Off the Light”, winning a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance for the former single. Since then, she has released six studio albums – her third (Loose) featured hit singles “Promiscuous”, “Man Eater, “Say It Right”, and “All Good Things (Must Come to an End)”. Her fourth record Mi Plan was her first Latin album, and won a Latin Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Album. Her latest album The Ride was released on March 31, 2017 on Furtado’s own record label Nelstar Music.
Metro are a UK-based team of writers, producers and remixers who have worked with some of the biggest names in pop. Some may know them for their remix of Britney Spears’ “I’m Not a Girl”, or their remix of “One More Chance” by Michael Jackson, which was featured on a Michael Jackson ‘Greatest Hits’ record. Being no stranger to working with big names, Metro have worked on numerous hit songs by Lady Gaga, Cher, Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez, and more.
Finally releasing their collaboration with Nelly Furtado in North America, Metro are thrilled to share their newest release:
“We’re super excited about this track – Nelly’s a global superstar and it was great to work with her…we hope everyone loves this tune as much as we do!”
