Pop singer Mika to make long awaited return to North America with release of upcoming album

This fall, critically acclaimed, platinum-selling international pop singer Mike returns to North America for The Tiny Love Tiny Tour. The headline run starts in September. General ticket on-sale begins July 12 at 10 am local time. The full confirmed itinerary can be found below.

New single and music video “Ice Cream” racked up 1.5 million cumulative streams and 500K YouTube views: music video. It was 
written by Mika and co-written/produced by Daniel Black, along with Mark Crew and Dan Priddy.

“Ice Cream” is the first example of his new full-length, "My Name Is Michael Holbrook" — arriving Oct. 4 via via Republic Records/Casablanca Records.

The track was "written on a day of extreme heat,” Mika says. “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, now I felt lighter and freer.”

He continues, “It was August in Italy. I wanted to run away to the sea, or just about anywhere. I dreamt about summer flings with someone totally stunning and out of my reach, I dreamt about the other person I always wish I was during the summer. Instead, I was left with all the discomforts of summer heat. Sweat, work deadlines, bee stings, and all this with no AC.”

“The song is a daydream fantasy.” Mika adds, “It shimmers like a mirage, and makes me feel like anything is possible. Inspired by the irreverent attitude of the music of the 90s; George Michael among others. Dare to be the more proud version of yourself. Dare to be a sensual man, dare to express out loud the desires you always keep inside your head. That’s why and how I wrote it.”

Mika's musical success began with the release of his hit single, “Grace Kelly.” The single was featured on his debut album, Life In Cartoon Motion, which hit #1 in the UK and 11 other countries, going on to sell over 7 million copies worldwide.

Since the debut, he has released three other platinum selling full length albums, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, The Origin of Love, and No Place In Heaven. In addition, Mika has  won a Brit Award for British Breakthrough Act, nominated for Grammys and MTV Europe Music Awards. His Rai 2 prime time variety show “Stasera Casa Mika” won the prestigious Rose D’or Award for Best Entertainment Series in 2017. He has been a judge on France’s The Voice for six years and hosts his own BBC2 Radio show “The Art of Song”.
