and producer Timbaland
took inspiration from an unlikely source while working on the Canadian's latest album - Irish singer Enya
. Timbaland - real name Timothy Mosely - made Furtado the first signing to his record label and reinvented her sound on Loose
, and the pair credit Enya with providing the foundation for the new vocal sound.
Furtado says, "Timbaland and I listened to her a lot in the studio. Some of the vocals on my new album try and mimic her rich and beautiful vocals. I think many artists try and emulate her sounds and are inspired by her in a quiet way."
