Artist Watch: Live Your Life, Listen To Yuna

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Whenever I see Pharrell's name in adjacent to the ever-loving groove, especially as a producer, my brakes are slammed on and I do a wild U-turn to see what sorcery he has bestowed. This time he's onto something celery stalk fresh, as he's frothing up a newcomer to the scene. And who doesn't mind a new kid on the music block?

Welcome Yuna, a Malaysian singer-songwriter, who hits all the right cues with her single, "Live Your Life". Literally, this was l-o-v-e at first listen.
and a sweet 180 from the folk-pop EP, Decorate, that the former law student released last year. This time in Pharrell's sonic ambiance vase she sears in the leisurely yet funky morsel that begs to be put on repeated listens.

Good news, you can drop a dollar and purchase "Live Your Life" over at iTunes right now, as well as take in her cover of Nirvana's "Come As You Are" (where Pharrell makes a slight appearance on). There's even more good news as Mr. Williams is producing a bulk of her debut self-titled long player, which is to be out this Spring. Can't freakin' wait.
