ENTER TO WIN THE ORIGIN OF LOVE BY MIKA !
We are celebrating the release of Mika’s brand-new album “The Origin Of Love” with a special contest. We are giving away 5 copies to our readers.
NEW ALBUM THE ORIGIN OF LOVE (UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC) OUT OCT 16TH
FEATURING COLLABORATIONS WITH PHARELL WILLIAMS, EMPIRE OF THE SUN, BENNY BENASSI, WILLIAM ORBIT
MIKA’s forthcoming album, The Origin of Love, due out on Universal Republic on October 16. Following up his multi-million selling worldwide smash ‘The Boy Who Knew Too Much’ (which debuted in every single iTunes top ten around the world), The Origin of Love is Mika’s third album and will be preceded by an EP this summer. The anthemic brand new single “Celebrate” is an epic slice of cool modern pop destined to be a global summer soundtrack, written by Mika, produced by Nick Littlemore from Empire of the Sun and featuring Pharrell Williams on vocals.
Completely self-created and self-imagined, ‘The Origin of Love’ has been a two-year DIY labour of love for Mika who has put together everything on the record himself, flying around the world under his own steam personally assembling an incredible roll call of collaborators – in addition to Nick Littlemore and Pharrell Williams Mika has also worked with William Orbit, Benny Benassi, FrYars, Greg Wells (Katy Perry, Adele), Klas Ahlund (Robyn’s Body Talk) as well as working with some brand new unsigned musicians he found himself online.
“This single is what happens when you combine a 22 year old you find online, Fryars, with an extra-planetary Nick Littlemore and Pharrell Williams!” says Mika of ‘Celebrate’. “Written by me, Pharrell and Fryars and produced by Nick, this kind of collaboration is only possible when everyone throws themselves into it wanting to have fun and without any ego. This collective and open attitude was at the heart of ‘The Origin Of Love’. It’s an album about crazy love songs and tolerance. It was recorded in Miami and London but mostly in Fryars’ north London bedroom studio!”
Mika has commissioned a short film to accompany one of the songs from the new album. ‘Make You Happy’ which can be seen at http://vimeo.com/43593102 . Another track from the album ‘Elle Me Dit’ was released in France last year, reaching No 1 and becoming one of the biggest tracks of summer there.
Mika spent most of 2010 and 2011 on a massive Global tour playing hundreds of shows to sell-out audiences across Europe, Asia and North America. He will be debuting songs from the new album at his shows this summer. There will be a US tour this fall.
Mika has now sold over 8 million records and Gold or Platinum awards in 32 countries worldwide across his previous two albums ‘Life in Cartoon Motion’ and ‘The Boy Who Knew Too Much’, winning Brit and MTV Awards in the process.
