Classically trained pianist and singer Niia is gearing up for the May 5 release of her awaited debut studio album, I. Ahead of the big day, the LA-based songstress released “Nobody,” a lush, retro-inflected tune that is as steamy as a humid summer night. Not to mention, Niia’s breathy singing voice is like silk, especially with the track’s groovy instrumentals backing her.
“Nobody” was produced by Niia’s longtime collaborator Robin Hannibal – he’s also the produced the majority of the upcoming album. In the past, he’s worked with everyone from Kendrick Lamar to Chairlift and The Internet, so we’re expecting great things from their partnership.
Take a listen below.

EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A Long Island woman maintained indomitable resolve to find her missing dog more than a year after he got off his leash a year ago – and it has paid off.
As CBS2’s Emily Smith reported, Yogi Bob – a five-pound terrier mix, simply disappeared in East Hampton. An all-out search failed.
But an amazing coincidence miles, and miles away brought them back together.
Yogi Bob was leaping up in the air after being reunited with his delighted owner, Dominique Garstin. It had been a long separation, dating back to January 2016.
Garstin’s father, Michael, decided to let the playful and highly energetic pup off his leash.
“I was actually the person walking the dog, Yogi, with our two larger dogs when he disappeared,” Michael Garstin said, “and I felt very, very guilty.”
Without her beloved and furry companion, Dominique Garstin could not sleep. She and friends searched far and wide, and she even paid a nationally-renowned dog tracking company $5,000 to look for Yogi Bob.
“It was a pretty intense and relentless search, and we put up thousands of signs,” Garstin said, “We were getting crazy sightings. I got a phone call from a gentleman who had seen him being chased at night by a fox.”
And then two weeks ago, the 15-month search for Yogi Bob came to a happy end, 75 miles away at the Town of Hempstead animal shelter, through an incredible coincidence.
“I was evaluating this dog and I said, ‘Wow, he looks really, really familiar,” said Christie Fanti of the Hempstead shelter.
Against all odds, in her new job at the Hempstead shelter, Fanti knew all about Yogi Bob’s disappearance. She had previously worked at the East Hampton shelter when the dog went missing.
Fanti immediately called Dominique Garstin, who raced to Hempstead.
“She started crying, and she kind of dropped down and kept asking him, ‘Is it you?’ And then she picked him up, and she started licking her face,” Fanti said. “And it was very sweet.”
Dominique Garstin and her father and her young son could not be happier, although Yogi Bob’s roaming days are over.
“He’s going to have a very leashed and collared life from this point forward,” Dominique Garstin said.
If you’re wondering about the dog’s name, it is because Dominique Garstin calls herself a yogi and is a yoga instructor.

By now, most people are familiar with sunrise alarm clocks – they’re the ones that gradually wake you up by simulating a sunrise. Well, Los Angeles-based Mode Modern has taken that concept and applied it to a pillow. The Sunrise Smart Pillow does more than just lighting up in the morning, however.
Speaking at tense event at Soas attended by pro-Israel and pro-Palestine protesters, Mark Regev says wider Arab world must be involved in talks
Israel is pressing for a fresh Middle East peace initiative involving Arab states, Mark Regev, the Israeli ambassador to the UK, told a meeting at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London as pro-Palestinian activists mounted a vocal protest outside.
Regev said Israel “wants to see larger and greater involvement from the Arab world” in new peace negotiations. Pragmatic Sunni Arab states saw a “convergence of interest” with Israel in relation to Iran and had “significant cards to play”, he added. He said that Israel had approached Donald Trump’s administration about “trying to get the peace process back on track”.
Based on its small size and limited range, the Nissan Leaf would usually be one of the last vehicles you’d choose for driving thousands of miles through remote areas of the world. But the electric vehicle advocates at Plug In Adventures are about to do just that. They’ve specially prepared the Nissan Leaf All Terrain Electric Vehicle for the 10,000-mile (16,000-km) Mongol Rally, where it will be competing against many more of the last vehicles you’d usually choose for driving thousands of miles through remote areas of the world.
