THE NEWEST TRACK, “PLACES TO GO”, PRODUCED BY DJ PREMIER RELEASED TODAY VIA THE FADER

 

TOUR TO KICK OFF IN WASHINGTON, D.C. ON APRIL 29

 

(February 19, 2016 – New York, NY) – Today, Malaysian singer-songwriter, Yuna, is pleased to announce that her highly anticipated third studio album, Chapters, will be released on May 20, 2016 on Verve Records. The first track off the album, “Places To Go”, produced by DJ Premier can be listened to at The FADER here: 

 

Pre-order for the standard and deluxe versions of Chapters is available on Yuna’s website here. Official tracklist below.  

 

“’Places to Go’ is a song about when you’re growing into the person that you’re meant to be. Sometimes you go through all these things that will change you as a person and you find it hard to deal with all of these challenges,” Yuna told The FADER. “You get tired of moving from one city to another and sometimes what helps you find a sense of yourself is to go back home and search for peace and sense of belonging. Sometimes you just need to take a break from all of it.”

 

Yuna’s beautifully constructed third studio album further showcases her contemporary pop, acoustic folk and soulful R&B sounds, which have won her comparisons with the likes of Feist, Adele, and Norah Jones. Chapters follows her 2013 album, Nocturnal.

 

In addition to announcing Chapters, Yuna is excited to share the news of her spring tour, which kicks off on April 29, 2016 in Washington, D.C. The 15-date trek will make stops in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle, Los Angeles and more. Pre-sale tickets can be purchased via Yuna’s website TODAY, February 19 here. Official tour dates can be found below.

 

The charismatic star has received accolades from the likes of Billboard, NPR, Elle, NY Times, Vibe, Marie Claire and more. She has also performed high-profile sets at the Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo festivals and has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Conan and Last Call with Carson Daly
