Nilüfer Yanya is a promising new 23-year-old London-based singer/songwriter/guitarist. She released her debut album, Miss Universe, in March via ATO. Now she has shared a video for the album’s “Paradise.” The video is a family affair; it was filmed in Istanbul, her father’s hometown, and produced/directed by her older sister Molly Daniel (with camerawork and editing by Patrick Chamberlain). A press release states: “The ‘Paradise’ video pays homage to Yanya’s heritage, while her lyrics question whether paradise is a place or a feeling.” Watch it below, followed by Yanya’s upcoming tour dates.

Read our recent interview with Yanya about Miss Universe.

Previously Yanya shared three 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), “In Your Head,” which she shared in January and was also one of our Songs of the Week, and “Tears,” which she shared in February via a lyric video. Then she shared a video for “Baby Blu,” which was shot in Tokyo.

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.”
