MNEK pairs up with multi-Platinum vocalist Hailee Steinfeld on “Colour,” delivering his boldest and brightest statement thus far. Skipping far beyond the rainbow of love’s possibilities, the track is an infectious summer anthem. “Colour” is from MNEK’s debut album, which will be released by Capitol Records later this year. The single goes to radio today and is now available for download and streaming HERE. Watch the lyric video HERE.
Steinfeld – whose hit singles include “Love Myself,” “Starving,” “Most Girls” and “Let Me Go” – is also an Oscar and Golden Globe-nominated actress who has been seen in such films as True Grit, Pitch Perfect 2 and 3 and The Edge of Seventeen. She will be opening for Katy Perry on the U.K. leg of WITNESS: The Tour. MNEK will join Steinfeld on stage at London’s O2 to perform “Colour” on the run’s opening night, June 14. He will headline London’s prestigious Wilton Music Hall on June 19.
