Nilüfer Yanya: The Dealer

The fourth release from Nilüfer Yanya’s forthcoming Painless (the follow-up to her 2019 debut, Miss Universe, and seven-track 2021 album, Inside Out), “The Dealer” is a vibrant, ’90s-influenced track that shimmers. She 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.”
