Mabel has today announced details of her spring headline UK tour, including her biggest headline show to date at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum (which is on sale now). The pre-sale for the just-added run of wider UK shows begins on Wednesday at 9am, with general sale commencing this Friday at 9AM.
This follows the phenomenal, unstoppable success of ‘Finders Keepers’, which recently spent five weeks in the Top 10 (following its initial appearance in March) and has seen Mabel make breakout appearances ranging from ‘Sounds Like A Friday Night’ to ‘Later..with Jools Holland’ and the 1Xtra Live Lounge. Mabel has also been confirmed for this year’s Capital Jingle Bell Ball, where she will again grace the O2 Arena stage – after an appearance at this year’s Boy Better Know takeover – on a bill also including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Stefflon Don.
An artist well and truly hitting her stride, Mabel recently released her debut mixtape, ‘Ivy To Roses’: a vivid snapshot of her extraordinary personal journey thus far, and a tantalizing taste of where she may go next. Born into a musical dynasty, Mabel has spent the last couple of years carving out her own sound, her own way; now arriving at the point where she is ready to make the type of debut album she has spent her whole life (from choreographing DIY dance routines with her sister to writing songs in secret) building up towards. Along the way, Mabel has grown into one of British pop’s most refreshing and positive young role models: moving effortlessly between the worlds of music, fashion, dance and art, and as at home collaborating with Stormzy or Tate Modern as she is touring with Years & Years and teaming up with campaigns for Adidas.
Buoyed by the slow-burning success of ‘Finders Keepers’, Mabels describes ‘Ivy To Roses’ as “another piece of the puzzle. It’s collection of songs that I love and want the world to hear right now. This is only the beginning of my journey but I want people to feel part of the evolution of my music, which is why I’m putting another project out now.” Always an honest, open and exciting young talent, ‘Finders Keepers’ announces Mabel as a blossoming, bonafide pop star who’s not done growing yet.
