Nilüfer Yanya is back with a new album for 2022, ‘PAINLESS’

Set to arrive on 4th March 2022, the record is previewed by a new track, 'stabilise'.

Nilüfer Yanya has announced the details of her much anticipated second album, ‘PAINLESS’.

Set to arrive on 4th March 2022, the record is previewed by a new track, ‘stabilise’, which you can check out below.

Nilüfer explains of the video for ‘stabilise’: “I was really thinking about your surroundings and how much they influence or change your perception of things. A lot of the city is just grey and concrete, there’s no escape. The video plays on the central theme in the song of no one coming to save you ever. It’s set in the depths of reality in everyday 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.”

‘PAINLESS’ follows up on 2019’s ‘Miss Universe’, and is described by Nilüfer as “a record about emotion”.

“I think it’s more open about that in a way that ‘Miss Universe’ wasn’t because there’s so many cloaks and sleeves with the concept I built around it,” she continues.
