Mika's New Songs 'Lady Jane' and 'Lonely Alcoholic'


Mika


Mika will release an EP titled 'Songs for Sorrow' that includes two piano-ridden ballads, 'Lady Jane' and 'Lonely Alcoholic'.

Instead of crafting a full-length album to follow up his successful debut album "Life in Cartoon Motion", Mika goes forward with an EP that contains four acoustic songs. Titled "Songs for Sorrow [EP]", the album has revealed two of its tracks, "Lady Jane" and "Lonely Alcoholic".

Both "Jane" and "Alcoholic" are ballads that are led with piano. And true to the EP's theme, the lyrics suggest the "misfortunes" of "stressed out single mother" in "Alcoholic" and tell the tragic story of a woman who seeks her lover down the sea by becoming fish and eventually got killed for a dish in "Lady Jane".

"Songs for Sorrow" will be available on Mika's website on May 25. "It was good for me to strip everything back down to just the basics," Mika said about the album. There is a limited edition of the EP which will be released along with a hard-back book of artwork by some of Mika's favorite artists such as Peter Blake, Paul Smith, Es Devlin, Jim Woodring, Sophie Blackall, Jim Medway, Tao Nyeu, Richard Hogg, Huck Scarry and Walter Van Beirendonck.

"The idea for the book then came from the lyrics to these songs," Mika explained, "which are like dark fairy tales, and I thought it would be brilliant to get illustrations to go with them and to get some of my favorite artists to give their own interpretation on the stories."
