‘Nocturnal’ marks Yuna’s first full-length follow-up to her critically acclaimed self-titled debut from last year. “Nocturnal” features Yuna’s distinctive blend of bouncy trip-hop, R&B soul and acoustic folk while also “digging deeper into her huge bag of pop star potential” (okayplayer.com). The album marks a new chapter for the Malaysian-born artist who is earning plenty of comparisons to female vocalists such as Feist, Adele and Norah Jones.
Already recognized worldwide, 2012 served as YUNA’s breakout year in North America. With her debut, Rolling Stone championed her as having, “certified indie cred and massive pop potential,” and Complex described her as, “a deeply refreshing addition to America’s musical landscape.” She’s performed on national television, was a finalist for MTV Iggy’s “Best New Band In The World,” has had multiple songs featured in movies and on soundtracks, and played both Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. She recently appeared on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” where she performed her duet with multi-platinum recording artist OWL CITY, “Shine Your Way.”
