After a short break, “Song for the Weekend” is back and is returning in style.
Mika first burst on to the music scene back in 2007 with his debut single “Grace Kelly”. The quirky video and catchy chorus made the track an instant hit. The Beirut born singer/songwriter then went on to release a string of great pop songs from his debut album “Life in Cartoon Motion”.
He gained a strong fan base and became known for flamboyant live shows which would usually include a lot of audience members in fancy dress.
His second album, “The Boy Who Knew Too Much” was released in 2009 and peaked at number 4 in the UK album charts.
Mika is back! Sporting a new haircut and with new confidence Mika is set to release his brand new album, “The Origins of Love”. Mika has spent the summer performing at festivals, including London’s “Lovebox” and his new material sounded great live. The singer recently revealed that he’s gay after years of speculation about his sexuality and seems to be ready to have some fun with this new album.
The first single from the new album “Celebrate” is a great pop track and felt perfect for this week’s “Song for the Weekend”.
