New Good Song: "Cold Hard Truth," Nelly Furtado 6.4.17

Here's a new good song: "Cold Hard Truth" by Nelly Furtado. This track is off Furtado's latest ignored flop The Ride, which I eagerly mined trying to find anything to get excited about, and "Cold Hard Truth" is the best in the bunch. Furtado released two of my favorite songs of 2001, and one of my favorite of 2006 (playlists below), but also has, over the years, released some aggressively grating garbage. Her voice is an acquired taste; when used on a good track, it's pleasant enough, but when on a bad track (like "Big Hoops (Bigger The Better)", it's unbearable. "Cold Hard Truth" seems to exist outside time and place; it's not really retro, but it's not really futuristic, and it's certainly not very contemporary. But it's a nice effort. Enjoy!
