Mabel has shared a new track celebrating 25 years of Pokémon – watch the video for ‘Take It Home’ below.
The track is the latest preview to emerge from ‘Pokémon 25: The Album’, a special anniversary record also featuring Post Malone, Katy Perry and Jay Balvin.
“I’ve been a fan of Pokémon for years, so I jumped at the opportunity to join the P25 program,” Mabel said of his contribution in a statement.
“I had a great time working with Pikachu and my all-time favorite Pokémon, Jigglypuff for the video ‘Take It Home’. I hope fans love this song as much as I celebrate 25 years of Pokémon Loved working on this to celebrate!”
Pokémon’s Colin Palmer said: “Mabel’s incredible talent and pop sensibility add a huge layer of fun to Pokémon’s P25 music campaign celebrating 25 years of Pokémon.
“Music fans are going to love ‘Take It Home,’ and Pokémon fans will be delighted to see Jigglypuff, a bubbly Pokémon who also loves the song, featured in Mabel’s live video. It’s a pitch-perfect ally to celebrate our 25th anniversary.”

“Pokémon 25: The Album” was confirmed earlier this year, when Post Malone revealed his contribution to the album with a rendition of “Only Wanna Be With You” by Hootie & the Blowfish.
Katy Perry then shared the new song ‘Electric’, which is set to appear along with 13 other tracks by 11 Universal Music Group artists on the album, due out October 16.
Speaking about the song, Perry said: “I got very nostalgic when I visited the Pokémon Cafe while touring Japan. It took me back to my junior high years. So when I found Post Malone and J. I was so excited when I got the call to be a part of the 25th anniversary celebrations with Balvin.”
She continued: “The theme of the song — resilience, igniting your inner light — has guided my life and paralleled the story and characters of Pokémon.”
Elsewhere, Mabel signaled her return last month with a teaser clip that previewed the new music. The artist is soon set to follow up with his debut solo album ‘High Expectations’ which was released in August 2019.
