Larry King: Since you started, has the musical landscape changed a lot?
Nelly Furtado: Yes.
Larry King: You have streaming, right, you have apps and streaming-
Nelly Furtado: Yes, yes.
Larry King: Pull it down from the sky.
Nelly Furtado: Yes, totally. I own my new album, I got the album back from the label. It’s the second project I’ve done independently with independent partners, like my Spanish album, and it’s been a fun experience for me because I’m quite prolific, I write a lot of songs. So with streaming now, what I can do is I can call up Spotify and say, “Hey guys, just did an acoustic cover of Calvin Harris ‘Feel So Close,’” and they’ll say, “Great, we’ll release it tomorrow.” I mean, that kind of freedom never existed before.
Larry King: Can you make as much money?
Nelly Furtado: Slowly, in the long term. I mean, artists now, as you know, we make most of our money live. I’ve been lucky because I’ve always owned my own publishing and I write my songs, which is really, really great.
