Nilüfer Yanya Releases New Song “midnight sun”
- London-based singer-songwriter Nilüfer Yanya released a new song “midnight sun” from her upcoming sophomore album “PAINLESS”.
The song is the second single off of the album, following “stabilise” released last November.
It was written by Wilma Archer and Nilüfer Yanya. The accompanying music video was directed by her sister Molly Daniel.
“It's a song about recognizing what it feels like to be pushed down but wanting to resist,” Nilüfer Yanya said of the song in a statement. “I really like the imagery of 'midnight sun' as a lyric as it insinuates a light guiding you through darkness. The wings carry their own symbolism—freedom, lightness, flight, fantasy. If I could pick what people saw & heard it would be seeing the beauty of confrontation and the necessity of rebellion.”
She added, “The video plays on the central theme in the song of no one coming to save you ever. It's set in depths of reality in every day life where we are the only one's truly capable of salvaging or losing ourselves. Nothing is out there -both a depressing and reassuring statement (depending on how you look at it). Sometimes you have to dress up as a spy or a rock star and just hope for the best.”
The new album is set to be released on March 4, 2022 via ATO Records.
