MIMI WEBB ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM AMELIA
ARRIVING MARCH 3, 2023
LEAD SINGLE “GHOST OF YOU” OUT NOW
Today, breakout singer-songwriter Mimi Webb announces that her highly-anticipated debut album Amelia will be released on March 3, 2023, via EPIC Records. Amelia is available for pre-order now.
“Announcing my first ever album is such an important moment in my career that honestly, sometimes I wasn’t even sure would happen. But after 3 years of hard work, I just can’t wait to share this body of work with all of you who have helped me get to where I am today,” Mimi shares. “The album is named Amelia, my full first name, as there are two sides of me that I want people to get to know. There’s Amelia, the girl from the UK countryside who loves to be at home with her family, friends, and dogs; and Mimi, the pop artist who loves to be up on stage traveling the world. It was important for me to capture this duality with songs written for both of those girls, and I’m excited for you all to get to know them!”
The news comes on the heels of the album’s lead single, “Ghost of You,” released last Friday. The power-pop track was met with critical acclaim as Consequence of Sound praised, “’Ghost of You’ taps into early-2000s energy authentically… to achieve a transcendent quality to both the song and music video.” “Ghost of You” was produced by Stuart Price and RISC. The song was accompanied by its aptly aesthetic music video, directed by Fa and Fon Watkins, which made its broadcast premiere across MTV channels.
Additionally, Mimi has announced The Amelia Tour, the 2023 headline tour will make stops across Europe and the UK following the release of her debut album. The 30-date tour will kick off on March 11 in Madrid, Spain at Shoko continuing with stops in Berlin, Oslo, Paris, Manchester and more before concluding on April 24 in London, UK at O2 Academy Brixton.
Mimi is currently on her first ever North American headline tour, which saw her perform to a sold-out Bowery Ballroom in NYC last night. The tour follows a massive summer for UK-based emerging artist, which saw her perform at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in London, numerous festivals such as Capital FM’s Summertime Ball, Isle of Wight Festival, and Montreux Jazz Festival, and joined as support for Justin Bieber in Norway and Finland.
In just two years the rising star has racked up over 730 million global streams to date, and multiple hit tracks including “House on Fire” and “Good Without.” She has garnered praise from the likes of British Vogue, Rolling Stone, Harper’s BAZAAR, and Billboard, and has performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and ELLEN. Mimi shows no signs of slowing down as she gears up for the release of her debut album.
