      Nelly Furtado surprised everyone when she performed with Dom Dolla at Australia’s Beyond the Valley Festival on New Year’s Eve in 2022. Her appearance on stage with the rising producer was her first in five years, since the iconic Vancouver Island artist went on hiatus after 2017’s The Ride. Now, she’s officially back, with a new Dolla-produced song called “Eat Your Man.” 

      "Meeting Dom has been an absolute blessing,” Furtado said in a release. “We have a real creative synergy and trust when we work together - we hear music in a similar way and I am super inspired by his live shows. He’s reminded me how much fun music can be and for that I am grateful."

      The dance floor-ready house music track even references a couple of Furtado classics: “Maneater,” of course, in the title, and also “I’m Like a Bird,” with the line: “Fly like a bird/I’m taking it home.”

      “Nelly first reached out to me after we were both booked to play Beyond The Valley Festival,” Dolla added.

      “She’d discovered my music not long before and was into what she heard. We immediately hit it off after hanging out and she mentioned that she was looking to start writing a bunch of new records and would love my input as a  songwriter/producer. After a few days of writing she mentioned she would love to work on a club record together, and we began to put some ideas down. Not long after, ‘Eat Your Man’ was born. Nelly and I have since become really good friends - I even completed the mix down for this tune while house-sitting for her in LA. She’s the nicest pop star I’ve met thus far and is a joy to work with. The tune has since become a real moment in my DJ sets, I hope you guys like it as much as we do!”
