MIKA Announces New Album “Que ta tête fleurisse toujours”, Shares New Song “Apocalypse Calypso”
British singer-songwriter MIKA has announced his sixth studio album “Que ta tête fleurisse toujours” will be released on December 1, 2023.
It is his first album in four years since the 2019 album “My Name Is Michael Holbrook”.
MIKA describe the album as “very pop, very melodic, extremely joyful, very intimate. It's not an intimacy that's morose or melancholy at all. It's wide, it's free.”
The album comprises 12-track, entirely written and performed in French. Produced by Martin Lefebvre and Tristan Salvati.
MIKA said of the album, “You will really get into my head and my life in relation to my relationship with France. It's the beginning of my life, it's my youth, my childhood, a certain challenge and also the death of my mother. I didn't want to express this important part of my life in English. And I must say, while creating this record, I was never bored.”
- He continued, “I didn't want to pretend to be a Frenchman. So I kept all my particularities, my accent, my mistakes, everything! And I didn't want to go 'track shopping', asking everyone to send me songs for consideration. Impossible. That's not pop music. Alt pop, you have to write it, you have to be part of the whole process.”
He added, “Creation helps everyone, I think. Even if it doesn't want to be grandiose, even if it comes out in a very intimate and personal way, this idea of creativity means that there are neurons that are working and that there are associations that are formed. We feel more...liberated.”
From the album, MIKA released the second single called “Apocalypse Calypso” on October 19, 2023, following “C'est la Vie” released in September.
The track was written by MIKA, Carla De Coignac, Marsō and Matthieu Reynaud. Produced by Marsō and Renaud Rebillaud.
