Nilüfer Yanya discusses her favourite lyrics from new album Painless on The Record Club

Nilüfer was the latest guest to join The Record Club with Bowers & Wilkins.

Nilüfer Yanya was the latest guest to join this week's The Record Club with Bowers & Wilkins. 

The 26 year old English singer-songwriter joined Jess Iszatt to discuss the release of her latest record, Painless. Her second album, it follows on from Miss Universe (2019), as well as a string of previous EPs. 

Speaking about her favourite lyrics on the new LP, Nilüfer singled out a particular turn of phrase from album cut Midnight. 

"I've always liked 'you are my best machine'" she said, "it sounds quite romantic in a way. It's kind of weird, because machinery isn't normally something you give human emotions to.

"I wouldn't call myself a poet. My lyrics are a bit too basic, and I always start with the music and the melody. I find the words in the melody and carve them out."

Designed as a book club for albums, The Record Club in association with Bowers & Wilkins is a bi-monthly livestream, hosted by BBC Music’s Jess Iszatt, on Facebook Live, Twitch, Twitter and YouTube Live every other Wednesday.

Fans are encouraged to order the selected new-release album from their favourite local record shop either in-store or on home delivery, listen to it in full, then tune into the broadcast armed with their questions for the artist and a chance to win a prize.

The next guest on The Record Club will be Ella Henderson, who will be joining us to discuss her upcoming second album (and first in nearly eight years), Everything I Didn't Say.
