Let the buzz begin: Singer-songwriter Yuna on her new album 'Nocturnal'

With her second American album Nocturnal set to hit streets on Tuesday, we sat down with the Malaysian-born singer-songwriter Yuna to chat everything from listening to the Spice Girls  to working with the Neptunes’ Chad Hugo.

EW: So your sound has a big mix of genres. What are some of your strongest influences?

Yuna: I’m a ‘90s child, so I grew up listening to the Cardigans, Fiona Apple – just a weird mixture. The Cranberries and Spice, you know what I mean? My dad used to play a lot of rock, too, like the Beatles and Velvet Underground.

You once described your music as a cross between Mary Poppins and Coldplay. Can you elaborate?

I can’t believe people still hold onto that! It was a quote that I had on, like, my Myspace Music page seven years ago. But yeah, what I meant to say is I like to incorporate a lot of different genres in my music, and, you know, having a sense of honesty and sincerity in the lyrics as well. But I’m still pop at the same time.
