Mika Announces Heaven Show And New Album
21 Jun 2012
Mika returns to the scene with a one-off show at Heaven, London on 26th July 2012. The Beirut star had hits with his multi-Platinum debut 'Life in Cartoon World' and global singles 'Grace Kelly' and 'Big Girl (You are Beautiful)'.
Mika’s second album 'The Boy Who Knew Too Much smashed every countries’ iTunes Chart, and in September 2012, he is set to release his third studio album ‘The Origin of Love’ which contains the single ‘Celebrate’ written by Mika and non-other than super producer Pharrell Williams and produced by Empire of The Sun’s Nick Littlemore, with Pharrell on vocals.
‘The Origin of Love’ features a whole host of collaborators William Orbit, Benny Benassi, FrYars, Greg Wells (Katy Perry, Adele), Klas Ahlund (Robyn's Body Talk) as well as unsigned acts as well.
"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!"
