After touring throughout Europe and elsewhere in recent years, Nelly Furtado is happy to launch a lengthy cross-Canadian trek behind her new album The Spirit Indestructible.

"I know it sounds strange but I'm excited about touring Canada in the wintertime," Furtado says. "I mean I'm sure there will be times where I'm like, 'What am I doing?' but once you get out there I'm the consummate professional. I've been doing this a while now, it's been 13 years so I don't go on automatic."

That professionalism was tested when she ended up working with acclaimed producer Bob Rock for Believers (Arab Spring), the new album's closing track.

Furtado was a bit intimidated by Rock who has credits with Metallica, Motley Crue and Aerosmith.
