Los Angeles-based Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna will be releasing her album on iTunes tomorrow.
The singer-songwriter will be releasing Nocturnal, her first major label album, tomorrow.
Los Angeles-based Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna is set to release her forthcoming major label album Nocturnal via The Verve Music Group on iTunes tomorrow.
Fans can sample the entire album through an exclusive album stream at www.ryanseacrest.com.
The indie pop-centred Nocturnal, which features 11 tracks, will be released on CD on Nov 4.
Back in May, she previewed her major label sound with the Sixth Street digital EP which featured five songs.
The Sixth Street EP’s lead track I Wanna Go also makes it on the Nocturnal album tracklist.
Nocturnal was recorded in Los Angles with the 27-year-old singer-songwriter collaborating with Chad Hugo (The Neptunes) and Robin Hannibal (Rhye).
“The working environment in LA is really refreshing, really good. Because in Malaysia, it’s a small country – you end up working with the same people that you like and that you know. But LA is so huge, there are probably a million producers working there, you know what I mean? A sea of them. So you just have to find the right fit,” revealed Yuna in a recent interview with US magazine Entertainment Weekly.
She added further about LA: “And they’re all so good, because it’s the hub – everyone goes out there to make music. So it was really refreshing for me to work with different producers from different genres. I was living in a bubble (before). I came from a strong jazz/ singer-songwriter/folk influence, but in LA I learned how to have a balance between all these genres and R&B music and hip-hop, mixing them all together.”
Highlights from Yuna’s Nocturnal album include Mountains, Lights and Camera and the album’s first single Falling.
Last year, Yuna released her first international album (her self-titled album Yuna) through the Fader label in New York.
