Yuna announces release date for third studio album


Malaysian singer-songwriter, Yuna has announced that her highly anticipated third studio album, Chapters, will be released on May 20, 2016 on Verve Records.



Along with the release date of the new album, the prolific Malaysian artist has also launched news of an impending U.S. tour later in the year.


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.


She’s pulled in some serious collaborative heat too, securing the talents of DJ Premier (of Gangstarr fame) to make beats and produce her most recent single ‘Places To Go’. Discussing the significance of the song, Yuna said, “’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”

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.
