Mabel has today unveiled ‘Mad Love’, the lead single from her hugely anticipated debut album High Expectations, due for release on August 2 via Polydor Records.
This follows the unstoppable success of recent single ‘Don’t Call Me Up’, which peaked at #3 in the UK and spent eight weeks in the top 10 (as well as going top 10 globally on Spotify and landing Mabel her first hit around Europe and the US).
Off the back of performances on The Graham Norton Show and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Mabel has also been confirmed as the UK’s first ever Youtube Artist On The Rise (following the likes of Brockhampton and Maggie Rogers), which was just launched at Piccadilly Circus with a preview of ‘Mad Love’. An extensive run of live dates now follows into the end of the year, including Mabel’s UK & European tour with Khalid.
Listen to ‘Mad Love’ by Mabel on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
Thrilling, unapologetic and liberated, ‘Mad Love’ is an anthem for women to call the shots and talk about exactly what (and who) they want.
Written by Mabel alongside Steve Mac and Kamille – the winning trio behind ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ – ‘Mad Love’ arrives alongside an iconic video directed by Marc Klasfeld, who has previously worked with the likes of Cardi B, Destinys Child, and Jay Z.
The video further showcasing this fierce, increasingly-fearless young woman living out all her wildest pop-star-dreams, but in thoroughly modern, warts-and-all style.
It’s this extraordinary journey to where she finds herself now that is encapsulated on Mabel’s debut album, ‘High Expectations’: a record – and a state-of-mind, in many ways – that she has worked towards her whole life (even getting the title tattooed phonetically on her neck when she first thought of it two years ago, knowing firmly that it would never change).
Still aged just 23 years old, the twice-Brit-nominated artist has already sold over 3.5 million singles in the UK (three platinum, three gold, and two silver), surpassed one billion streams, and sold out the likes of Brixton Academy.
