MIKA RELEASES NEW SONG ‘MAKE YOU HAPPY’ – REVIEW.
MIKA WITH ‘MAKE YOU HAPPY’
Mika has been a little quiet of late in the UK but is still enjoying a highly successful career in Central Europe.
This new song reminds me of ‘Fireflies’ by Owl City which isn’t a bad thing – that song was a huge international hit. It also owes a lot to the Super Furry Animals in terms of the sound.
‘Make You Happy’ appears as part of a short film that the star commissioned, directed by Philippe Paillé.
“Here’s the first song I wanted you to hear from my new record, The Origin of Love,” Mika wrote. “This is not a single but a song I really love and wanted to share with you.
“I commissioned a short film which I felt perfectly captured the sentiment of the track. The film was directed by Iouri Philippe Paillé and was made in Montreal. This is where the entire album started taking shape a year ago with Nick Littlemore at Planet Studios in Papineau.”
He added: “I can’t wait for you to hear the first single and the rest of the album very, very soon.”
