According to Furtado, her new album doesn't hide her flaws. In fact, she told the Fader it embraces them.

"The Ride is my hard-knocks album where I ride in a sin confessional and celebrate my mistakes," she told the outlet. "The equation is imperfection = beauty. This record for me is a palette cleanse, and a chance for me to showcase my songwriting with the help of John Congleton's unique and modern production style."

Congleton, a Grammy-award winning producer and musician, is the producer of The Ride. He's also worked with St. Vincent, Erykah Badu and The War on Drugs to name a few. The album is a blend of mid-tempo and laid-back pop rock sonics.
