MIKA debuts a new song “Sanremo” today. Listen/share HERE. The track follows the release of “Ice Cream” and “Tiny Love” from MIKA’s highly anticipated new album, My Name Is Michael Holbrook, out October 4. Pre-order the album HEREIdolator proclaims, “[MIKA is] making up for a long gap between projects…by gracing our ears with a couple bops ahead of the release date.”

In celebration of the forthcoming album, MIKA will make a long-awaited return to North America on his sold-out Tiny Love Tiny Tour with opening support from Kiesza on all U.S. and Canadian dates. The headline run kicks off with back-to-back shows at New York City’s Brooklyn Steel on September 12 and 13 with further dates in San FranciscoLos Angeles, and Montreal. Tickets are on sale now, see below for a complete itinerary.

For his first full length in five years, MIKA explores his American heritage on My Name Is Michael Holbrook. While his tumultuous childhood began in Lebanon before fleeing to Paris and then London, he focuses the album on the roots he traces back to his father’s Savannah, Georgia upbringing. The work also paints a loving picture of his relationship with his mother, the woman who trained him, made his wardrobe for years on the road and most importantly taught him never to follow and always to express himself fearlessly. After writing in home studios in Miami and Tuscany over the course of two years, MIKA went to Brussels to record with producers Marc Crew and Dan Priddy.

“I hadn’t put out a record in four years. I didn’t know what to do when it came time to start the process and was honestly kind of at a loss,” MIKA says. “I felt a little disappointed by the commercial side of the industry. I didn’t want to make a record by numbers or by committee. I wanted to make an uncontaminated, homemade pop record.”
