Mika’s New Album Is Out NowPosted Oct 4 2019
Today Mika releases his long-awaited fifth album, the 13-track ‘My Name Is Michael Holbrook’! Accompanying the worldwide release is the brand new music video for Sanremo, also out today.
“The day has finally come! I’ve loved sharing my new songs and music videos with you over the last few months, but it has all been leading up to this. It feels wonderful to announce that my brand new album ‘My Name Is Michael Holbrook’ is out now! Listen, love, share and let me know what you think!”
Speaking on the Album, MIKA explains: “I wanted to find out where I came from and why my legal name is Michael Penniman Holbrook Junior,” says MIKA. “I had the title of the album before I had the album. It was a manifesto. It was a challenge for me.” Seeking to uncover the identity of MIKA before ‘Grace Kelly’, he found a profound sense of joy at his discovery. “It was quite liberating. I freed myself of the idea of MIKA.” With My Name Is Michael Holbrook, MIKA intimately shares his whole self with his audience. All he asks now is for us to do the same: “We don’t need perfection. We need character, we need emotion. To feel free to express yourself,” says MIKA. “Express yourself, you won’t be judged here.”
