Today, FADER Label, the recording branch of The FADER, announced the signing of Yuna, the 24-year old Malaysian-born singer-songwriter who is quickly becoming one of 2011’s artists to watch.
Already home to seminal indie-recording artists Matt and Kim, Neon Indian, Editors and Saul Williams, FADER Label will add to its diverse catalogue by releasing Yuna’s US debut EP, Decorate, digitally on March 15th.
“I remember the very first time I heard Yuna’s voice sing the opening lyric, ‘Is your favorite color blue?’ from the song ‘Deeper Conversation’,” said Rob Stone, co-founder of FADER Label. “I still hear it in my head the way I heard it that day. Her voice is uniquely exquisite, and she has a true talent that is beyond compare.”[youtube tBmedWBexHI nolink]
