  10. Mika has just released his music video for Sanremo from the new album ‘My Name Is Michael Holbrook’! Sanremo is out now and available to watch in full on YouTube here. Director’s Statement: “We set this film in the late 1950’s to remind ourselves of an era when homosexuality if not illegal was socially unacceptable, a time of discrimination and persecution. For Mika’s imprisoned character the lyrics become a hymn to feeling in an unfeeling world. ‘San Remo’ represents his utopian dream, a fictional place of liberation and transcendence. ‘Over there you shine like a star. Doesn’t even matter who you are…’ Yet fifty years later we sadly have to be aware that for many peoples in the world ‘San Remo’ still remains a dream. So I and we must wholeheartedly respect Mika himself for choosing to make this film with such eloquence and courage. To be of value to someone other than oneself.” ‘To get to a place where you could love anything you chose, not to need permission for desire, well now that was freedom’ -Toni Morrison The post Mika Releases New ‘Sanremo’ Video appeared first on Mika Sounds.

  11. 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.” Listen to ‘My Name Is Michael Holbrook’ here.

Of the video Mika said: “I knew I needed a different sort of director for this video, more art and film based. W.I.Z. was the perfect choice.
