Breakthrough singer/songwriter Yuna has teamed up with VICE/NOISEY to release her intoxicating new track, “Falling.” Produced by Robin Hannibal of the soul-pop group Rhye, “Falling” offers the first taste of new music from Yuna’s forthcoming album “Nocturnal.”
“Nocturnal” will be released on October 29, 2013 via Verve Records, and serves as the first full-length follow-up to Yuna’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut from last year. “Nocturnal” features Yuna’s distinctive blend of organic pop, R&B soul and acoustic folk while also “digging deeper into her huge bag of pop star potential” (okayplayer.com). The album marks a new chapter for the Malaysian-born artist who is earning plenty of comparisons to female vocalists such as Feist, Adele and Norah Jones.
“Nocturnal” is a collection of eleven infectious new songs featuring the effervescent and uplifting track “Rescue,” produced by Chris Braide, as well as “I Wanna Go” produced by Michael Einziger of Incubus and the breezy “Come Back.” The album is currently available for pre-order via Amazon, here.
Already recognized worldwide, 2012 served as YUNA’s breakout year in North America. With her debut, Rolling Stone championed her as having, “certified indie cred and massive pop potential,” Complex Magazine called her “a deeply refreshing addition to America’s musical landscape” and The New York Times described her music as “gorgeous.”Yuna performed on national television, was a finalist for MTV Iggy’s “Best New Band In The World,” has had multiple songs featured in movies and on soundtracks, and played both Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. She also appeared on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” where she performed her duet with multi-platinum recording artist OWL CITY, “Shine Your Way.”
North American tour dates will be announced shortly.
