Yuna – Places to Go (Produced by DJ Premier)

“’Places to Go’ is a song about when you’re growing into the person that you’re meant to be. Sometimes you go through all these things that will change you as a person and you find it hard to deal with all of these challenges,” Yuna told The FADER over email. “I was truly honored to work with legendary DJ and producer DJ Premier. I still can’t believe I have a track with Premier, it really is one of the best songs I’ve written in a long time.”

The Malaysian singer-songwriter’s forthcoming third LP Chapters will be out on May 20; she’ll hit the road this spring for a U.S. tour.
