Nilüfer Yanya is a promising new 23-year-old London-based singer/songwriter/guitarist. She is releasing her debut album, Miss Universe, on March 22 via ATO. Now she has shared another song from it, “Tears.” Listen below, followed by her upcoming tour dates.

Previously Yanya shared two Miss Universe tracks: “Heavyweight Champion of the Year,” which she shared back in November via a video for the track (it was one of our Songs of the Week), and “In Your Head,” which she shared in January and was also one of our Songs of the Week.

“Tears” was shared with a lyric video “featuring the branding of the shadowy ‘WWAYH’ (WE WORRY ABOUT YOUR HEALTHTM) organization whose darkly funny automated phoneline interludes are peppered throughout Miss Universe.” In a press release the mind department of WE WORRY ABOUT YOUR HEALTHTM issued this statement: “Despite previous claims of crying being natural response to stress and regarded as healthy, recent studies have unearthed evidence that proves this claim as untrue. It can also simulate similar responses in others to varying degrees, primarily targeting the vulnerable (infants, children and elderly) which makes it a socially irresponsible behavior. The Body department would like to add it is also a waste of bodily fluids and self destructive to one’s health hereby deeming the act of crying illegal.”

A previous press release said that Miss Universe features “co-productions with both her former school guitar teacher The Invisible’s Dave Okumu and her live bandmates Jazzi Bobbi and Luke Bower, as well as producers John Congleton, Oli Barton-Wood, Will Archer and M.T. Hadley.”
