Malaysia’s very own contemporary pop singer Yuna is back with a new Malay single :)
The new track, titled “Pulang”, is a collaboration between the California-based songstress and homegrown graffiti artist turned rapper, SonaOne.
“Pulang” is Yuna’s first Malay language song since the release of her last Malaysian album, “Material” (2015) and it is produced by AG Coco, Lincoln Jesser, and Fisticuffs’ Brian Warfield aka Bobby Coleslaw. The aforementioned producers have previously worked with Yuna on several different occasions before.
According to the “Crush” singer herself, the single is about “coming home”. “Its in Malay, my native language, Pulang means ‘come home’. Dedicated to all you people in long distance relationships lol,” she wrote on Instagram.
SonaOne also took to his Facebook to share the new song, saying, “I am super happy about this collaboration with the ever-so wonderful, talented and beautiful Yuna for her new Malay single ‘Pulang’!”
There isn’t any music video released yet, but you can listen to the soothing and heartfelt song below:
