Mika is back with a blast (and a sexy new haircut). His new album The Origin of Love has been released in France last week and reached #1 in charts. The record will drop in the UK on the 8th of October and will include an English version of Elle me dit, the lead single for French version of the album (Emily in UK ver.). However, lead single in the UK, other European countries and US will be Celebrate, an upbeat pop anthem. Mika described the sound of his new album as ‘more simplistic pop, less layered than the last one’. To achieve a new sound he worked with Benny Benassi, Greg Wells, Dan Wilson and Klas Åhlund. Mika also mentioned that his new album includes elements of Daft Punk. There seems to be a lot of electronica and voice processing thread into each track yet Mika still retains his unique sound.
