NY Post Pre-Reviews Mika’s New Album

mika we are golden nypJulian Broad just got his hands on some snippets from Mika’s new album, titled “We Are Golden” and due September 20 (should have been a summer album!), and he was mighty impressed:

To kick things off, the brilliant first single, also named “We Are Golden,” will begin to stream on Mika’s Web site on July 20. Not one to waste time, a video for the track, helmed by acclaimed Swedish director Jonas Akerlund, is also currently in being shot in the UK.

“We Are Golden” features the Andrae Crouch Gospel Choir (from Madonna’s “Like A Prayer”), defiant declarations of hope and a driving beat, while the floor-stomping song “Blame It On the Girls” begs for us to sing-along. The tracks “Rain” and “Dr. John” mix a 60s beach blanket bonanza with bona fide dance floor anthems, a lot like his hit “Relax” did in ’07. Oh, and don’t worry, Mika-ballad babies, the tune “Toy Boy” will leave you weeping for tons more from this fella’. Tons more than this one lonely CD can offer.

The album was produced by Mika and Greg Wells (Katy Perry, P!nk) and features a cameo by Imogen Heap.


“Toy Boy” was released on the physical edition of the “Songs For Sorrow” EP, which I posted two tracks from here.

Listen to “Toy Boy”, set to a fan-made music video, after the jump.
