Midnight Rapture

Anabel Englund (born September 1, 1992)  is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and DJ from Southern California. She is best known for her collaborative work with electronic and house music artists such as Hot Natured and MK.

Her debut album, Messing with Magic, was released in December 2020, with a deluxe edition dropping a few months later. It consisted of a compilation of all the singles released by Englund throughout that year under Ultra Music and AREA10, and featured "So Hot", "Picture Us", "Underwater" and "Waiting for You" which reached number one on U.S. dance radio.

Born in New York City and raised in Los Angeles to a musical family, her father is American actor and singer Morgan Englund, her grandfather was the director-producer George Englund and her grandmother, Academy Award-winning actress Cloris Leachman. Her great-grandmother Mabel Albertson and Mabel's famous brother, Jack Albertson, were also actors and came from a Jewish family.

Leachman inspired her granddaughter to become a singer. "My grandmother would make me sing in front of her actor friends but I'd be so shy, I'd have to face away," she recalls.  Englund regularly cites her major influence as being Madonna.
