Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Yuna announced today that she will kick off her first North American tour in support of her latest album NOCTURNAL on December 16th in Vancouver, BC. The tour will play key west coast markets including Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles before heading east for shows in markets including New York, Philadelphia, Washington and Pittsburgh, with additional dates to be announced soon.
NOCTURNAL, Yuna’s second studio album and debut release on Verve Records, has been earning rave reviews from critics for its sparkling and uplifting pop sound. USA TODAY called the album “beguiling” and NPR wrote, “Her profoundly honest and personal lyrics have been compared to Bon Iver.” THE SOURCE described Yuna as simply a “staggerlingly excellent singer.”
Yuna will appear on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic this Wednesday, December 11th and her song “Rescue” will be featured as Starbucks’ “Pick of the Week” starting tomorrow, December 10th.
Yuna recently released the video for her first single “Rescue” which Complex Magazine posted raving, “what she does musically feels like audible euphoria.” Yuna performed the song live on CONAN in November. Watch her outstanding performance, which happened to be on her birthday, HERE.
