We can't deny that Subang Jaya has brewed many musicians and artists, and it's biggest export, Yuna, is one fine example. Having released her first single 'Live Your Life' a couple of months back under US based Fader Label, and her appearance on Conan O'Brien's show, your ears can now take a peek at what her debut album will sound like.
Though its unfair to judge an album by listening to 58 – 60 seconds of each track, this self titled album seems like a record that you'd wind down / chillax to, we hope she releases remixed versions too (most of the tracks on the album seems like it's setup up for that). Dig this though, mentions on twitter by various US artist (most notably, Tyler the Creator from hip hop collective Odd Future) seems like this record will sink well with the masses.
There is no official date on a Malaysian release yet, so check her official website for updates.

On April 24, Malaysian pop star Yuna released her first full-length album in America. She recently recorded a stripped-down version of 'Island,' the first single from her self-titled disc, for Converse's 'Rubber Tracks' series.
Yuna, whose full name is Yunalis Zarai, is a 25-year old singer-songwriter with two albums and an EP to her name since 2008, for which she has won many awards in her native Malaysia. Five of the English-language tracks from those albums were compiled in an EP, 'Decorate,' which was released in the United States in March 2011.
The video for 'Island' is shot in black-and-white and features Yuna playing an unplugged hollow-body electric guitar. According to the bio on her website, she is heavily influenced by female-fronted 90s alternative acts such as No Doubt and the Cranberries. But you can also hear elements of modern female singer-songwriters like Feist and Sara Bareilles in her work, too.
