Mimi Webb, a UK pop singer, and songwriter who has had a breakout year has released a new single and music video named “24/5” today.
A soft piano accompanies Mimi Webb and her intimate delivery of the lines on the single. As her voice rises on the hook, “Haunted by your love, holding on for 24/5,” handclaps add to the momentum. The accompanying cinematic visual, directed by Samuel Douek, presents an equally dramatic story, as Mimi’s star power shines just as brightly as her singing.
Produced by Freedo, “24/5” sets the tone for her Seven Shades of Heartbreak EP, which will be released on October 22nd. The songs “Good Without” and “Dumb Love” have become international hits. They’ve already surpassed 200 million streams as a group. Both songs charted in the UK Top 15 at the same time, making Mimi Webb the first UK female artist since Dua Lipa in 2017 to have two singles in the Top 15 prior to the release of her debut album.
On October 22, 2021, Mimi Webb is set to release her album entitled, Seven Shades of Heartbreak.
Who is Mimi Webb?
Mimi Webb is a pop singer and songwriter, who hails from the UK town of Canterbury, turn up the volume on every emotion with skyscraping runs and open-heart honesty. She has a voice that is as seductive, enormous, and mystical as she is. She’s quick to laugh, will tell you exactly what’s on her mind, and isn’t afraid to be heard as “the girl next door” with a hell of a vocal range.
Mimi Webb began writing songs in diaries at the age of 13 after being inspired by Amy Winehouse, Emelie Sandé, and Sam Smith. She ultimately learned to play the guitar. She also enrolled in The BRIT School, which has alumni including Adele, Amy Winehouse, Jessie J, and others. She left home three years later, settled in with a host family, and enrolled at the famed BIMM (British Institute of Modern Music).
Mimi landed management and signed a deal with Epic Records in 2019, after posting a few early compositions and collaborations online. Her spontaneous acapella videos went viral on TikTok, garnering over 20 million views and paving the door for a string of original fan favorites like “Before I Go,” “I’ll Break My Heart Again,” “Reasons,” and “Good Without.” Both of her latest singles, “Dumb Love” and “Good Without,” peaked in the Top 15 on the UK Singles Charts after receiving over 200 million streams, with the latter rapidly rising up the Top 40 of Billboard’s Adult Airplay and Mainstream Airplay charts.
Mimi Webb was also just added to BBC Radio 1’s Brit List, according to Music Week. The distinguished gift comes after Wonderland, teenVOGUE, Refinery 29, Euphoria, CLASH, FLAUNT, Consequence of Sound, and others praised her maiden upcoming UK Tour this Fall, which sold out. Mimi Webb will return in 2021 with a voice that is just loud enough to give you goosebumps.
