New Song + Video : Yuna : Decorate

Yuna might be the prototypical pop star for the next decade. Raised in a Muslim household in Malaysia, she was inspired to begin composing on guitar at age 19 by acts like No Doubt, The Cranberries. and Fiona Apple, and soon carved her own unique style. In 2008, while attending law school, her debut self-titled EP became a massive critical and commercial hit in Malaysia, and led to taking home a mess of hardware from the 2009 AIM Awards, including Best Pop Song and Song of the Year.

On March 15th, FADER released Yuna’s Decorate EP in the United States, with the promise of a full-length later in 2011. The title track and its stark video pack quite a wallop into less than two minutes, and while I hate to get Pollyanna on ya’ll, it’s artists like young Yuna who could play a huge role in uniting people in seemingly disparate cultures.
