Yuna stays put in Malaysia until Covid-19 cases in US subside

"Right now, the Covid-19 cases there is rising. I'll wait for the right time, maybe next year," says the US-based singer.

US-based Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna intended to make a quick trip home last March but ended up staying on for more than eight months and counting.

"My husband (director Adam Sinclair) and I came back here to fulfil some work obligations in March and then the movement control order (MCO) came into effect," she tells Harian Metro.

"I'm OK with it because at least I get to spend time with my family here."

The 33-year-old has been living in the United States since 2011, when she decided to pursue an international career.

"I'll go back to Los Angeles once the situation there improves. Right now, the Covid-19 cases there is rising. I'll wait for the right time, maybe next year."

The pandemic has affected her work but she was still able to record a few songs at home. She even released a single, Stay Where You Are, in May.

"I have meetings with my producers in the US via conference calls. There have been some challenges but it won't be any easier even if I was in the US.

"Compared to the situation there, we're more stable here."
