"midnight sun" is the second release from Yanya's second album, following lead outing "stabilise" that arrived in November last year.

Yanya says of the new track, "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… If I could pick what people saw and heard it would be: seeing the beauty of confrontation and the necessity of rebellion."

PAINLESS will follow Yanya's 2019 debut LP Miss Universe, and according to the artist, it's a "record about emotion." Yanya added, "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."

"midnight sun" is out now. Nilüfer Yanya's PAINLESS album will arrive 4 March via ATO Records, and is available to pre-order now.
