Official Press Release:

New York, NY (March 15, 2011) – Today, FADER Label, the recording branch of The FADER, digitally releases the hotly tipped US debut EP Decorate by acclaimed singer-songwriter Yuna.

This past February, Yuna performed before a sold-out audience at the legendary venue, Mercury Lounge – her first ever show in New York City – and confirmed her status as one of 2011’s artists to watch. The New York Post proclaimed her an artist “You Must Know.” Billboard Magazine booked her to perform their space at the annual SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX. URB raved “Vocally, the singer blends the sultriness of a jazz chanteuse with the sincerity of an acoustic singer-songwriter — think Norah Jones meets Regina Spektor or Ane Brun…” On February 24th, Yuna took music fans by storm again when she made her debut radio performance live on the influential station KEXP.

Yuna began her career as a musician in 2008 when she released her self-titled EP in her home country of Malaysia and instantly began turning heads. The single “Deeper Conversation” became a massive success and went on to win the title of Best English Song at the 2009 AIM Awards, Malaysia’s national music awards. Yuna swept the ceremony, garnering Best Pop Song and Song of the Year for her Malay song, “Dan Severnarya”.

Growing up in a Muslim household in Malaysia, Yuna was first inspired by the universal appeal of acts like No Doubt, The Cranberries, and Fiona Apple. At the age of 19, while in law school, she picked up a guitar and began to fervently write. She joined various art groups and recognized her love and natural talents for sketching, photography, web design and graphic design. Yuna’s DIY aesthetic is apparent in music as well as fashion. She is part owner of the clothing shop I Am Jet Fuel, a successful couture boutique in Malaysia. She even uploaded instructions for building a home studio to inspire others to follow their passions.

FADER Label releases Decorate today, March 15th, with a full-length album due later this year.
