“Colour,” MNEK’s new offering from his upcoming debut album is an intelligent, vibrant, and gloriously infectious anthem, bursting with boundless energy. Featuring pristine vocals from American popstar, actress and girl-of-the-moment Hailee Steinfeld, the new single is MNEK’s biggest, boldest and brightest statement so far and is destined to soundtrack the summer with over 8 million global streams.
Directed by Bradley & Pablo (Charli XCX, Frank Ocean, Migos, Cardi B), the video is a fantastical wonderland of possibilities. Hailee is queen of the castle and invites MNEK to explore. View the video HERE.
Still only 23 years old, MNEK has already clocked up an astonishing ten years in the business, having signed a publishing deal aged just 14. With his early material like “Never Forget You” and wider collaborations, he has an impressive 1 billion streams to his name. The list of people he’s written and produced for along the way is hard to quantify – Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, Little Mix, Madonna, Diplo, MØ, Rudimental, Julia Michaels and Stormzy to name but a few. With his debut album expected later this year, it’s fascinating to watch the stars align for the incomprehensively talented MNEK.
This summer has seen MNEK play his own headline show at London’s prestigious Wilton Music Hall which was completely sold out, as well as The Mighty Hoopla in South London and Parklife in Manchester with more dates to be announced. Earlier this month, MNEK has joined Hailee on stage to perform “Colour” on the U.K. leg of Katy Perry’s WITNESS: The Tour.
