Singapore’s highly-anticipated music and arts festival, Neon Lights has announced that Malaysian star Yuna will be joining its star-studded roster featuring Sigur Ros, Foals, Crystal Castles and Jose Gonzalez.
This will mark the only chance in 2016 for her fans in Singapore, Malaysia or Thailand to catch the LA-based superstar, who will be performing with her four piece band.
Since her last concert here in Singapore in 2015, Yuna triumphantly returns with her third album Chapters, a product of her collaboration with a Hollywood super team including legendary producer David Foster, Fisticuffs and DJ Premier. Crowned one of 2016’s best R&B records by Rolling Stone, its lead single Crush melds her sleek vocals with Usher’s for a refreshing brand of R&B and pop that is uniquely Yuna’s.
“Yuna is the perfect addition to a festival that celebrates and showcases international acts on the same stage as homegrown Asian ones” Neon Lights’ festival director Declan Forde said. “She’s a fascinating mix of dual identities and themes – born in Malaysia, based in Los Angeles; a singer-songwriter of light contemporary pop with some heavy R&B undertones. It’s all going to make for a very interesting set when she performs and we’re really excited to see what she brings.”
Yuna is scheduled to perform on Sunday, 27 November 2016.
Neon Lights brings together more than 50 music and art performances over two days in the quintessential festival for arts lovers and audiophiles alike. Held on 26-27 November 2016, other confirmed acts areGeorge Clinton, Shura, Blood Orange, The Tallest Man on Earth, The Sugarhill Gang as well as homegrown names including Gentle Bones, Linying and Cashew Chemists. The lineup of art performances will be announced later in September.
