Nilüfer Yanya Announces New Album, Shares New Single ‘Method Actor’

    Nilüfer Yanya has announced her third album, My Method Actor. The follow-up to 2022’s PAINLESS lands on September 13 via Ninja Tune. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘Method Actor’, which follows ‘Like I Say (I runaway)’. Check it out below, along with the album cover, tracklist, and Yanya’s upcoming tour dates:

    Yanya worked on the album in London, Wales, and Eastbourne with her creative partner Wilma Archer. “This is the most intense album, in that respect,” she said in a statement. “Because it’s only been us two. We didn’t let anyone else into the bubble.”

    Of the new single, she added: “I was researching method acting – and from what I read, it’s based on finding this one memory in your life, a life-altering, life-changing memory. The reason why some people find method acting traumatic and maybe not safe mentally, is because you’re always going back to that moment.… It’s a bit like being a musician. When you’re performing, you’re still trying to invoke the energy and emotion of when you first wrote it, in that moment.”
