MIKA has just released the video for “Celebrate”, from his forthcoming album The Origin of Love, due out on Universal Republic on October 16. “Celebrate” is an epic slice of cool modern pop that is already a hit in Europe. The song was written by Mika and produced by Nick Littlemore from Empire of the Sun and features Pharrell Williams on vocals. Mika recently performed it at the Olympics.
Mika has commissioned a short film to accompany one of the songs from the new album. “Make You Happy” which can be seen by clicking here. Another track from the album Elle Me Dit was released in France last year, reaching #1 and becoming one of the biggest tracks of summer there.
A further Mika composition from the album writing sessions ‘Gang Bang’ features exclusively on Madonna’s new MDNA album, a track which she has widely praised as her favorite song on the record.
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.
