"It's a song about recognising what it feels like to be pushed down but wanting to resist..."

Nilüfer Yanya has shared her new single 'midnight sun'.

The songwriter's vivid debut album 'MISS UNIVERSE' lit up 2019, and she took her time when completing a follow up.

This patient and assured approach reaches fruition with 'PAINLESS', her incoming studio LP.

Out on March 4th, the record is trailed by excellent new song 'midnight sun', a moment of exquisite beauty from the songwriter.

The vocal feels tender and open, while 'midnight sun' resonates with a quiet but pervasive sense of resistance.

Nilüfer Yanya comments...

“It’s a song about recognising what it feels like to be pushed down but wanting to resist. 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…”

She continues: “If I could pick what people saw and heard it would be: seeing the beauty of confrontation and the necessity of rebellion.”

Tune in now.
