Fukuoka’s Yui has been turning out chart-toppers since releasing her 2006 major-label debut, “From Me to You,” while still in her teens. The Avril Lavigne-esque songwriter’s new disc, “Holidays in the Sun,” will drop July 14 and she’ll showcase it at Rock in Japan. Making her third appearance in as many years, expect a sea of gals in their 20s eagerly crooning along to Yui’s sweet, summery guitar pop.
