Nilüfer Yanya shares meditative new single ‘anotherlife’

"At the core of the song it’s just about being OK with things and accepting that this is where you are at."

Nilüfer Yanya has shared the latest taste of her forthcoming second album – you can see a luxurious video for new single ‘anotherlife’ below.

The visuals were shot while on holiday in Sri Lanka, and were directed by the London musician’s sister and frequent collaborator Molly Daniel.

Yanya said of ‘anotherlife’: “At the core of the song it’s just about being OK with things and accepting that this is where you are at. However, the ‘I’ll do anything’ line hints at a desperation of wanting to let that be known.”

‘anotherlife’ is the third single to be released from Yanya’s upcoming second album ‘Painless’, which is set to arrive on March 4 via ATO and follows 2019 debut ‘Miss Universe’. It follows last month’s ‘Midnight Sun’, and November 2021’s lead single ‘Stabilise’.
