Mika has a new single called "We Are Golden", and he plans to make it available for exclusive stream on MySpace Music for 24 hours on July 21 starting at 9:00 A.M. EST. Moreover, he will also feature the new song on MySpace homepage and his MySpace page.
"We Are Golden" is the title track and the first single from Mika's upcoming second studio album of the same name "We Are Golden". The song is described as a "big sounding and aggressive, but in a good way. It's got a gospel choir on it and a kids' choir, but unlike the first record they're not singing sweetly, they're screaming at the top of their lungs." Its music video is currently in pre-production, and will be helmed by acclaimed Swedish director Jonas Akerlund.
The new album itself is due in U.S. stores on September 22. Coming from production hands of Mika and Greg Wells (Katy Perry, Pink), the effort features guest contributions by Imogen Heap and Final Fantasy's Owen Pallett among others. It retains a breadth of vision that speaks not only to Mika's extraordinary melodic sensibilities, but also to the incredible stories he tells within his songs.
Mika enjoys a global following thanks to his colorful musical repertoire, cathartic stage-presence, and multi-platform connectivity of his dazzling 2007 debut album, "Life in Cartoon Motion". Through the record, he dropped such hit singles as "Grace Kelly", "Love Today" and "Relax" which sold over 5 million copies worldwide, and made him being nominated for a number of awards including Grammy Awards, Brit Awards, World Music Awards, and U.K.'s most prestigious songwriting honor, Ivor Novello Awards.
