Nilüfer Yanya has returned with her new single, “Like I Say (I runaway)" alongside news of her signing to Ninja Tune.

This offering is her first new music since the release of her 2022 album, PAINLESS. “Like I Say (I runaway)” comes alongside a music video directed by Yanya’s sister Molly Daniel that features Nilüfer as a runaway bride.

The single focuses on the moment when you realise how precious time is. Speaking more about the single’s thesis Nilüfer shares, “It’s about how you choose to spend your time. Time is like a currency, every moment. You’re never going to get it back. It’s quite an overwhelming thing to realise.”

The new single was written in collaboration with Yanya’s creative partner, Wilma Archer (Sudan Archives, MF DOOM, Celeste), with whom she’s previously collaborated on PAINLESS and her debut album, Miss Universe.

“Like I Say (I runaway)" is out now via Ninja Tune.
