Mabel has released her debut album High Expectations today. Listen HERE. High Expectations features global smash “Don’t Call Me Up” (the biggest-selling single by a UK female artist this year) and recent Top 10 “Mad Love”.
Mabel will perform at this year’s Teen Choice Awards airing live August 11 on FOX, as the only solo female artist– alongside an extensive run of live dates this summer where she’ll hit New York, Los Angeles, and D.C. Mabel’s “Don’t Call Me Up” also entered the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and graced radio airwaves across the U.S.
Even on the brink of release, Mabel appears poised to take her place on pop’s throne – having already been nominated for two BRIT Awards, she has surpassed 1 billion streams, and sold out a series of worldwide shows. and made her national TV debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this summer. The fact that Mabel has done so in her own warts-and-all style – stripping away music’s artifice whilst keeping true to its giddiness and excitement – may be her gift. Because like all great pop stars, Mabel was never going to settle for anything other than her own High Expectations: watch her seize her moment, soak it in, and keep reaching higher still.
Empowered, uplifting and emotive, High Expectations is a record – and a state of mind, in many ways – that Mabel has worked towards her whole life; even going so far as to get the title tattooed phonetically on her neck when she first thought of it two years ago, knowing firmly that it would never change. Here is a still just 23-year-old writing with startling candour on young love, identity, girl power, and mental health. And on that road to High Expectations, Mabel’s music has become a soundtrack – for her impassioned young fanbase, but also for herself – on how to turn those vulnerabilities into your advantages.
