Critically acclaimed Malaysian singer Yuna has made her long-awaited return with the release of “Forevermore.”
The atmospheric R&B track features the singer’s silky vocals over a pulsating beat and wobbling synths. “I found the strength I’m looking for / I’ll take it to forevermore / Yeah I was scared but now I know / That I can take it to, that I can take it to forevermore,” she sings.
The accompanying music video is an ode to her home country of Malaysia, and was shot on-location in Kuala Lumpur and the state of Perlis. The gorgeous visual showcases the nation’s vibrant cultural heritage, including “an old small village grocery shop… [and] the motorcycle culture that is often stigmatized by society,” Yuna said in a press release.
“‘Forevermore’ is a song that I wrote about coming from a small country. I grew up in a small town and how that made me strive to be the best that I can be,” she added. “When I was young I couldn’t wait to leave and see the world, but that made me able to appreciate my hometown more.”
The singer also recently collaborated with South Korean hip hop trio Epik High on the track “No Different,” from the latter’s Sleepless in album. Watch Yuna’s “Forevermore” video here:
