Mabel shuns Christmas on new song ‘Loneliest Time Of Year’

“sorry I’m not so merry / but I feel like this yearly”

Mabel has shared a new Christmas(ish) song, ‘Loneliest Time Of Year’.

The new song, shared ahead of a 2020 UK headline tour, doesn’t particularly see her getting into the festive spirit.

“sorry I’m not so merry / but I feel like this yearly,” she sings on the track. Listen to it below.


The new song follows Mabel’s debut album High Expectations, which came out in August. A three-star review of the album from NME‘s Hannah Mylrea said: “‘High Expectations’ is a solid album, with some extraordinarily good pop songs on it, yet it feels like something’s missing.”

The release of ‘Loneliest Time Of Year’ comes ahead of a series of UK tour dates this week, which had to be rescheduled after the singer fell ill earlier this year.

A huge run of January and February dates in the UK and Ireland will follow next year. View all the dates below.
