On April 24, Malaysian pop star Yuna released her first full-length album in America. She recently recorded a stripped-down version of 'Island,' the first single from her self-titled disc, for Converse's 'Rubber Tracks' series.

Yuna, whose full name is Yunalis Zarai, is a 25-year old singer-songwriter with two albums and an EP to her name since 2008, for which she has won many awards in her native Malaysia. Five of the English-language tracks from those albums were compiled in an EP, 'Decorate,' which was released in the United States in March 2011.

The video for 'Island' is shot in black-and-white and features Yuna playing an unplugged hollow-body electric guitar. According to the bio on her website, she is heavily influenced by female-fronted 90s alternative acts such as No Doubt and the Cranberries. But you can also hear elements of modern female singer-songwriters like Feist and Sara Bareilles in her work, too.

Yuna is currently touring small clubs in America through the end of June. She will also perform at Lollapalooza, which will take place in Chicago’s Grant Park from Aug. 3-5.
