Nelly confirmed she's finished her album, and it's rumored that John Congleton produced it. Congleton has worked on records for St. Vincent, Modest Mouse, Sigur Ros, Anna Calvi, Franz Ferdinand, and many more. She's also shared pictures and videos from the studio, and worked with Anjulie and Dev Hynes. Everything points to this record being very different from her others, especially her more pop/hip-hop flavored records like Loose and The Spirit Indestructible. I would love something lush and sophisticated in the Dev Hynes school of thought. Congleton recently produced the Pure Bathing Culture record, which also has a sound I could hear Nelly trying on. Regardless, I'm ready to have her back!
