Behind The Scenes Of Nelly Furtado’s “Spirit Indestructible” Video
We’ve already seen the legitimately heartwarming lyric video for Nelly Furtado’s “Spirit Indestructible,” off her forthcoming album of the (almost) same name, The Spirit Indestructible. So how can she possibly top a video that documents a double leg amputee climbing to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro? We’re not sure, but she’s released a fun behind-the-scenes clip from the single’s full music video to give us an idea.
So what does it reveal?
What we do know based on this tease: the video will involve beach bonfires, snow and tribal drums. Why so outdoorsy? “I love nature, my first video ever was in nature,” the singer explains. So while this song may sound miles away from her breakthrough mom-rock hit “I’m Like A Bird,” it’s actually a return to why she started making music in the first place.
Despite all the insight into what the song and video means to her, the highlight of this preview clip may be Furtado rapping the song’s A-E-I-O-U hook, complete with hand signs, which is just begging for a Feist-level Sesame Street crossover. It’s a reminder of just how diverse her talents are.
