Nilüfer Yanya has shared “the dealer,” from her forthcoming album Painless, available March 4th, 2022, via ATO Records. Speaking about the new single, Nilüfer says, “When I was writing this song I was thinking about the transient nature of life and the cyclical nature of the seasons. I find it interesting how we attach certain memories and feelings to different seasons and tend to revisit them time and time again, yet our lives move in a more linear motion and even when we feel like we are going back we never really get to go back anywhere. Musically speaking it’s a bit more playful and relaxed.”

Along with the release of “the dealer”, Nilüfer Yanya embarks on her 2022 world tour next week with the UK and Irish dates starting in Glasgow on 10th March and ending with London’s Electric Brixton on 16th March. A full run of European dates follows closely behind, with the North American leg kicking off with Coachella in April. “the dealer” follows previous singles “anotherlife,” which arrived with a music video directed by Molly Daniel in Sri Lanka, “midnight sun.”

As the daughter of two visual artists (her Irish-Barbadian mother is a textile designer and her Turkish-born father’s work is exhibited at the British Museum) creativity was always destined for Nilüfer Yanya’s future. Now she enters the next stage of her creative journey, Yanya is running head first into the depths of emotional vulnerability on her sophomore record PAINLESS. The album was recorded between a basement studio in Stoke Newington and Riverfish Music in Penzance with Miss Universe collaborator and producer Wilma Archer, DEEK Recordings founder Bullion, Big Thief producer Andrew Sarlo, and musician Jazzi Bobbi.
