British artist Mabel has unveiled her brand new single “Thinking Of You,” which first aired as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World (via Polydor Records) and will be available worldwide on iTunes and Spotify tomorrow. This follows a breakout few months for Mabel, who was nominated for the BBC Sound Poll, Spotify’s Ones To Watch and the Blog Sound of 2016 after just two tracks: she has since collaborated with SBTRKT, toured with Years & Years (including Wembley Arena), and made her debut festival appearances at the likes of Glastonbury, Field Day and Great Escape.
Cool and effortlessly confident, “Thinking Of You” draws intimately on those wider troubles of dealing with relationships when things are changing rapidly around you, a song about missing people and also home. In Mabel’s words “relationships with cities are similar to relationships with people, being away from both can really make you appreciate what you have”. Equally as inspired by iconic 90s R&B – Destiny’s Child, Lauryn Hill – as the contemporary, soulful hip-hop of Drake. The results are Mabel’s most accomplished yet, and arrive after an intense period of writing, touring and self-discovery for the only-just-turned-twenty-year-old.
