Mika New Album 'The Origin Of Love' Out September 16th 2012

Multi-platinum pop-star MIKA returns with his brand new album 'The Origin of Love', released on Island Records on September 16th 2012.

Following up his multi-million selling worldwide smash 'The Boy Who Knew Too Much' (which debuted in every single i-Tunes top ten around the world), 'The Origin of Love' is Mika's third album and will be preceded by an anthemic brand new single 'Celebrate', an epic slice of cool modern pop destined to be a global summer soundtrack, written by Mika and Pharrell Williams, produced by Nick Littlemore from Empire of the Sun and also featuring Pharrell 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!"

A further Mika composition from the album writing sessions 'Gang Bang' features exclusively on Madonna's new 'MNDA' album, a track which she has widely praised as her favourite song on the record.

Mika spent most of 2010 and 2011 on a massive Global tour playing over hundreds of shows to sell-out audiences across Europe, Asia and North America. He returns with a brand new live show, performing at Heaven in London on 26th July.

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.
