Says Anabel Englund, “In a cozy sky lit studio in London last August I worked in a session with one of my favorite co-writers Paul Harris & a new producer I had just met, James Hurr. They had played me a few ideas they started & one in particular really grabbed me. Within a few hours we had written & recorded ‘Need Me Right’ which felt intentional yet effortless. I am especially happy to release it in the later part of the year because the vibe just fits. This song is special & I love the story & I can’t wait for everyone to hear it! xx”

The Los Angeles-based artist spent late 2019 and all of 2020 putting out singles from Messing With Magic leading into its formal release in December on MK’s AREA10 label with Ultra Records, with the Messing With Magic Deluxxe album following in 2021 including six

In 2022, Anabel topped U.S. Dance Radio charts again “Lightwaves” with Benny Benassi landing her with an unprecedented seven #1s under her belt.
Englund has performed around the world at iconic festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella, Life Is Beautiful, Bestival, III Points and CRSSD, as well as venues like London’s O2 Academy, Ushuaïa Ibiza and the FriendShip music cruise.
During the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic while the world was on lockdown, Anabel took the opportunity to promote her music by sharpening her DJ skills and acoustic performance to perform a variety of live streams including Mixmag Lab Home Edition, EDC Orlando Virtual Rave-A-Thon, Higher Ground with Diplo, SIRIUSXM’s BPM’s Empowered Festival, Factory 93 and Desert Hearts among others.
She is also recognized for her eccentric, bold style and has performed at major cultural events like Paris, London and Milan Fashion Weeks.
In 2012, Englund stepped into the house scene, bringing her unique sultry, slow-burn voice to Pleasure State’s “Electricity” (her group project with Lee Foss and MK). She further cemented her arrival by following with “Reverse Skydiving” with Lee Foss and Jamie Jones’ collaborative project Hot Natured the following year.
She has released music on Hot Creation, Defected and Desert Hearts. There are a select few voices of house music that have paved their own pathway to legendary. As an artist to be reckoned with, Anabel Englund carries unforgettable, powerful melodies, and choruses to huge success.
