Nilüfer Yanya is back with her first single of 2018!
Following on from ‘Baby Luv’, ‘Thanks 4 Nothing’ details some of the darker thoughts surrounding a break-up and is, in her own words, about “drawing a final line under something that should have ended a long time ago. The song shows you can be bitter and grateful about it at the same time”. It’s also accompanied by a video directed by creative duo ENERGYFORCE.
Speaking of the video, Nilüfer said: “We wanted to make the Handmaid’s Tale meets Pulp Fiction. It carries a strong outdated 70s vibe with occult twists where nothing really goes according to plan and nothing really happens. This echoes both the current political climate and the inner failings of a relationship, both cult like in their own way and blindly following one another. Shot on 16mm film for that cinematic effect”.
As well as sharing the new single, Nilüfer’s also announced a string of European tour dates for April, which includes a UK run in May. The run includes her biggest headline show to date at London’s Village Underground on 29th May. Tickets are on sale now.
