Yuna has released “Invisible,” which is the first song she wrote during her time in quarantine.
The Malaysian artist’s new single, which was produced by Leven Kali, is about being deeply in love with someone who fails to see you and reciprocate in turn. In a statement on her website, Yuna explained that the song “picks up where [2016 single] ‘Crush’ left off.”
“This is my first proper song that I wrote during quarantine,” she revealed on Instagram. “I was about to go to sleep and I suddenly started singing in my head ‘I thought that maybe I could… explain the way I love you.’ I got up, grabbed the ukulele at like 1am, on the bed, and wrote the entire song… my husband walked in and was like, ‘did you just write that?’”
Yuna debuted the new single during a short performance for American radio station KCRW along with a similarly sultry cover of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.”
“Invisible” follows “Stay Where You Are,” which arrived in May. The pair of tracks are Yuna’s first releases following her 2019 album Rouge. The singer’s fourth album featured G-Eazy, Tyler, the Creator, Little Simz and KYLE, to name a few guests.
