Malaysian pop musician Yuna hasn’t released an album since 2013’s underrated gem Nocturnal, and now she’s turning some heads with her new single “Places To Go” thanks to its hip-hop bent. Produced by the legendary DJ Premier, the song’s boom-bap sonics represent a shift from the singer’s breezier pop and R&B musings.

“I wanna know what’s the weather like in New York,” she coos over a scratched, horn-laden beat. The single is off Yuna‘s upcoming LP, Chapters, which is scheduled for a May 20 release. Hear it below.
