Watch Nilüfer Yanya shares new track ‘Midnight Sun’

Her second album, ‘Painless’, arrives in March.

With her second album ‘Painless’ set for release on 4th March, Nilüfer Yanya is sharing new track ‘Midnight Sun’.

“It’s a song about recognising what it feels like to be pushed down but wanting to resist,” she explains. “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 and heard it would be: seeing the beauty of confrontation and the necessity of rebellion.”
