Nelly Furtado is prepping for a major comeback in 2012, teaming up with songwriter Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins on her forthcoming album.

In a new behind-the-scenes clip from the 33-year-old star, she talks about her strong connection with the Grammy-winning producer. “This is my first time working with Rodney Jerkins,” she says. “I only met him about six weeks ago actually. We hit it off creatively. We definitely speak a creative language together and it’s really fun working with him.”

Furtado also praised Jerkins for his “amazing pop sensibilities” and prodigious piano skills in below video, which she posted on her website on Dec. 23. According to the singer, the duo has recorded 10 songs for the new release, which is slated for a summer release.

Recently, Furtado debuted a new song called ‘Mystery,’ and promised fans she would be hitting the road for at least two years to promote her new LP. The full-length was originally going to be called ‘Lifestyle,’ but the singer has since changed its title, and says she’ll be revealing the new album name “in the coming months.”

Furtado’s new effort will be her first English language release since 2006′s ‘Loose.’ In addition to Jerkins, the Canadian star has reportedly collaborated with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Tiesto and Timbaland and Nas on the project.
