New Release: Yuna – ‘Sixth Street’ EP + Stageit Release Show

 

Yuna’s new Sixth Street EP is out today! The endearing Malaysian singer shares about the project:

Sixth Street is probably a new chapter for me. All of the songs were written in my apartment where I’m most comfortable, and at that point I understood who I was and knew what I was feeling about life.”

Listen to “I Wanna Go” and “Let Love Come Through” on our post from last week!

Celebrate the release with Yuna today with a live show at 6PM PST via a Stageit video feed.
