Today, the Copenhagen based alternative pop artist, M.I.L.K. shares his latest single “Make My Way To Paris” featuring French singer and songwriter, Benjamin Biolay. The track is the second offering to be released from his sophomore EP, Maybe I Love Kokomo, coming May 25th.
Stemming from his fascination of all things French, Emil Wilk set up basecamp in Paris while working on the next EP, achieving a more modern and upscale sound than his previous laidback summer tracks found on his first release, A Memory Of A Memory Of A Postcard.
About “Make My Way To Paris”, M.I.L.K. says:
“This song we wrote with Benjamin Biolay is about that: making it in Paris, but also making my way to Paris, physically speaking. If I can make it in Paris, then I can make it everywhere. I love Biolay, he’s a true modern icon. In my world, he is the King of Paris and in this song, the King of Paris welcomes me. His part, rapped more than sung, is the purest version of what I admire in French poetry. I’m proud of this collaboration, it’s probably my favourite song I’ve ever been part of.””
Following his viral single “If We Want To”, which has amassed over 2.5 million streams, and debut EP which has garnered over 6 million streams since its release last year, the Danish alt. pop artist returned last month with “Slow Emotions” and the accompanying video that was premiered with with the tastemakers at Baeble Music who said “Just as infectious as the single, the video is a fun montage of colorful, trippy clips like the artist singing in front of a bunch of wigs, drinks being poured, fruits being squeezed, and people running in front of surreal backdrops.” “Slow Emotions” is a summery affair that expands the singular sound of his unique producing style while building on the natural charm of his voice. M.I.L.K’s sophomore EP, Maybe I Love Kokomo, is due out May 25th on Play Nice Records.
