MIKA Performs “Ice Cream” at Sofar Milan
- English pop singer-songwriter MIKA performed his latest song “Ice Cream” at Sofar Sounds in Milan.
He will release his fifth studio album “My Name Is Michael Holbrook” on October 4, 2019. It is his first LP in four years.
“Ice Cream” is the first single off of the album. It was written by Daniel Black and MIKA.
MIKA said of the song on his Instagram, “It was written on a day of extreme heat in August. It was the last few weeks of writing for the album; a writing period that lasted two years. Through the writing I had confronted personal, serious and at times painful issues. By the end of it I felt lighter and freer. This was one of the last songs written for the new album.”
- He continued, “The song is a daydream fantasy. Like a heat mirage, and makes me feel like anything is possible. Summer and heat provokes that. The surreal dreamlike state of endless heat soaked afternoons. Pearls of sweat, dreams of summer flings, the smell and feel of a car in summer when you first step into it, the smell of a plastic parasol baking in the sun. The mix of possibility and lazy frustration. Senses and daydreams on the run.”
