Today, breakout singer-songwriter Mimi Webb announces that her highly-anticipated debut album Amelia will be released on March 3, 2023, via EPIC Records.
“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. “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.

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.
Mimi Webb projects a voice as magnetic, massive, and magical as her personality. As “the girl next door” with a hell of vocal range, she’s quick to laugh, will let you know precisely what’s on her mind, and isn’t afraid to be heard. Originally hailing from the UK town of Canterbury, the pop singer and songwriter turns up the volume on every emotion with skyscraping runs and open-heart honesty.
Inspired by the likes of Amy Winehouse, Emelie Sandé, and Sam Smith, she started writing songs of her own at 13 years old in diaries before eventually learning guitar. Around the same time, she enrolled in The BRIT School—known for alumni such as Adele, Amy Winehouse, Jessie J, and more. Three years later, she left home, moved in with a host family, and attended the prestigious BIMM [British Institute of Modern Music]. In 2019, she uploaded a handful of early compositions and collaborations online, landed management, and inked a deal with Epic Records. Mimi Webb’s impromptu acapella videos exploded with over 20 million views on TikTok, paving the way for a string of original fan favourites such as “Before I Go,” “I’ll Break My Heart Again,” and “Reasons,” and “Good Without.” Amassing over 200 million streams, she made waves with international hits “Good Without” and “Dumb Love.” The singles concurrently captured places in the Top 15 on the UK Singles Chart, which cemented Mimi as “the first UK female artist, since Dua Lipa in 2017, to land two singles in the UK Top 15 before the release of her debut album.”
Music Week also recently announced Mimi Webb as the newest addition to their BBC Radio 1’s Brit List. The prestigious offering comes after selling out her first UK Tour last Fall and receiving widespread acclaim from Wonderland, Teen VOGUE, Refinery 29, Euphoria, CLASH, FLAUNT, and Consequence of Sound, to name a few. Mimi’s forthcoming debut album, Amelia will be released on March 3, 2023.
