Malaysian singer/songwriter Yunalis Zarai, known professionally as YUNA has announced her 4th album titled ‘Rouge’ – featuring previous single Forevermore – is set to release on the 12th of July, 2019.
In a phone interview with Fly’s AM Mayhem, she shared that ROGUE – which means red in French – signifies love, passion and strength, qualities which she embodies.
“I’m in that time of my life where I’m really confident with myself & my identity. I’m married now – older and a little wiser.”
“For the album I wanted to have an old record vibe, like the 80s and 90s – something that represent a memory, or from the past.”
This comes together with the release of Blank Marquee featuring American rapper G-Eazy. The track marks their 2nd time working together, after Lights and Camera from the Yuna’s 2013 album Nocturnal.

The album is set to feature many collaborators, including Jay Park & Tyler, The Creator. The singer has been teasing the tracklist to the album on her social media accounts, which also includes a Malay track titled ‘Tiada Akhir’
“I’ve always wanted to have a Malay song in my English album – and this song was initially supposed to just be an interlude but it ended up being an actual song.”
