:uk: Translation by @crazyaboutmika

Question: Mika welcome to Chérie FM. How are you?


Mika: I'm fine,  thank you. It's a big promo day today. You're in a promo period right now.
Mika: Big week,  big month. [He makes a mistake and said "big me"  and he says he likes it and laughs]

 

Question: Do do you like doing promo?

 

Mika: When there's an album I want to defend and a single I like,  yes and I know it may seem strange and you can say ah really you have had albums that...so I like all my albums but for some you tell myself ok I'm defending it because there's really room for lots of people and now I feel as if the house I have built can host many people.

 

Question: So you are proud and rather happy and eager to talk about it everywhere.


Mika: Yes I can't wait. I can't wait,  It's like I prepared a magic box and I want to take everything out of the box. And also for the concerts,  for everything. And I think Ice Cream is a good start because it is joyful and festive but still you feel ,  it shows that I'm pushing myself,  that I'm provoking even myself. It's provoking but not for someone else,  it's almost,  it's highly provoking.

 

Question: You wrote the album during two years. During those two years what inspired you? Was it your moods? Was it your personal life? Was it what you saw around you?

 

Mika: That's my life. And that's my family. And that's my friends. That's really my life in all senses that inspired my album. There are very painful stories. That's my mother. That's my sister. That's the fact that I have always had a very sane relationship with my father,  but my father it's like he doesn't exist because I never talk about him. I,  I don't know his story. It was always that way and I don't know why. This,  this album and even its title,  my name is Michael Holbrook,  which is a name that I share with my father,  because I am junior and he is senior,  well it is obvious that I try to recreate links,  to heal things and also make a sort of evaluation to allow me to go on with my personal life and in my career,  for the next chapter,  that's really what happened. It's not exagerated. And I knew I needed to do it. And that'a why it took four years between this album and the previous one.


🎵Ice cream🎵


Question: You were born in Lebanon and your mother is Lebanese. Does that mean you went back there for example?


Mika: No I didn't go back there. In order to discover who I am,  I didn't travel to places,  except that the album was born in Savana,  Georgia in a cemetery. I did a road trip to discover where my father's family comes from,  a family I ignored everything about during all my life. It took me to Savana Georgia, and in Savana Georgia,  I went to the cemetary of Bonne Aventure,  the older cemetary of north America, apart, apart from the first native cemeteries in north America,  the American Indians. So I have just this place,  this cemetary dedicated to all my ancestors Penniman. It was very strange to see this story which doesn't belong to me at all,  but at the same time it belongs to me. All men are called either Elim Frederik or Richard or Michael Penniman or Holbrook. I saw all those Michael,  all those Holbrook. I saw all that,  the south of the United States,  those fields,  this strange and dark story,  and difficult and this is part of me,  really? And there I told myself: ok,  I'll see who I am. And after that,  I went back to my family,  in the living room,  in our  stories,  in things that were hidden during years,  in the things we avoid talking about,  the things that even my sister Paloma never wanted to say,  I put them into a song and I went to see her with a song and I said: there I said it,  you didn't do it,  I couldn't do it,  now we changed something painful like the accident she had which was very serious and the circumstances,  well look Paloma,  now you mustn't be afraid because it became something beautiful,  instead of being only something that frightens us or makes us sad.

 

Question: How did she react?


Mika: Err. Terrible. Bad.

 

Question: She didn't want the song to be released?


Mika:  She...I have never seen someone...she was frozen...she didn't move...but,  but that's the worst reaction you can get. Because she did nothing. And err,  she still doesn't talk about it. After she got out of the car,  immediatly we talked about something else,  I don't know the chicken that was on the grill at my aunt's house,  something trivial,  and we didn't talk about it. And she's working with me,  I talked to her this morning,  she mostly works on the promo,  and for now,  we'll see...it's an album which is really very important,  which is very melodic,  you'll see why when you will hear it but,  it conveys lots of things but also if you understand that this album is an album,  I am living with its consequences,  I'll live it one step at a time,  for many reasons I will explain to you later,  but not right now. And so it is an album with lots,  lots of joy and with such a deep sadness that I can't explain it now.


🎵Tiny Love🎵


Question: Correct me if I'm wrong,  but when you did your musical studies in London,  you didn't continue till the end.

 

Mika: No,  I was in the conservatory,  but I realized I didn't really need to continue till the end because I wasn't,  as an adult,  I didn't have the voice it took to sing classical music,  I mean opera. I was studying classical music,  classical singing,  as a barytone and I knew there were people around me that were more talented so I told myself if I can't sing Mozart at the level my fellow students do,  then I will sing Mika, I just need find songs so I'm going to write my own songs.


Question: Otherwise would you have liked to sing opera?


Mika: I would have liked to but the truth is different you know. Do you know that at the conservatory,  I was at the Royal conservatory in London,  there were so many people studying in my class and very few actually work in music today. It is so difficult. Everyday there were people crying in the class.  I mean everyday. I think what helped me is that I hadn't waited for my diploma,  for me this diploma wasn't compulsary,  it was not my goal. In my case,  it was only the environment I wanted around me and so I fought to have professional opportunities even before the diploma. And this is what saved me. Because I started working at a very young age. My first job was at the Royal opera house;  I was eight and I never stopped. I did commercials,  westend,  musicals,  ? and ? then Strauss,  Ravel,  Schubbert. I did all the jobs I could find,  anything. And my mother used to train me,  she used to train me four hours a day and we used to sleep in the Toyota Previa in the van. That way when my mother called and they said we need a singer,  but a local one because we don't have money to pay for hotel rooms and transportation and my mother would say: no, but no,  it's ok, it's ok,  we don't need transportation,  we don't need an hotel,  so we drove there and we slept outside inside the car.

 

Question: Where does that come from? Is that because you loved music since you were very little,  because you felt it was part of you or was it also a bit your mum's dream too?

 

Mika: I loved music. That's all I did naturally. I got kicked out of school. My mother looked at me and she said: this one if we don't totally go into it,  he'll do nothing. he won't do anything,  that's what she used to tell me. And she was right. Because I am an extremely ambitious person,  but also very lazy. In everyday life. But when it comes to work and music,  laziness doesn't exist.

 

Question: It's wonderful to have a mum like that.


Mika: Yes, but it is also very complicated. And I'm sure there are lots of mums who are listening,  who are such mums and lots of people who are listening who have such mums or such dads,  and,  and they will agree with me. It is,  if you have a parent like that,  you know it is complicated to deal with. You know it's difficult to manage,  but it is also a rich relationship with huge benefits because it can provoke lots of things,  but if you are such a parent,  you know it is very hard. I think,  I can imagine that my mother,  she was like that with me during four hours and I was seing her like a kind of,  she was terrifying me to encourage me to do that,  but I never thought of what she did once she got into her bedroom and she got in front of her mirror. And now I am 35 years old and I think about that and I tell myself: Yeah it must have been complicated for her. It was hard for me but worst for her.


🎵Relax🎵


Question: If we speak about the show,  The Voice,  well that's my point of view,  but I think that when you give your opinion about an artist,  the first time you hear them sing is that you are always totally right. You get what's essential from what you see and you know how to get them to progress. How do you do that? Is is because you are so familiar with working on music or is it also something totally instinctive for you?

Do you hear what's important right away?


Mika:  I don't know. Because I don't listen that much. I,  I,  the way I react in life for everything ,  it's more like,  I don't listen that much to words,  I always try to understand what is not put into words,  what is not sung and I think this is singing,  true singing is what is more subtle,  what is not not said,  the voice when it is singing and it is not a syllable,  it's not a word,  it's just a noise,  that's for me the moat expressive part of the voice. And those are the parts you need to listen to. And if you only listen to that,  that is where the truth is. And the behavior,  the choice of clothing. I know that and I'm telling you I was very very little amazed during all the years I did The Voice with differences because for me the voice and the person often fit together and yeah I don't know why. I think it is that way. The voice says a lot about a person.

 

Question: The voice,  the personal identity; it's as if when you hear the voice you already know more or less the personal identity.

 

Mika: Yes. And as I am someone who likes transformation,  err,  yeah,  there's nothing better than someone who gets on stage dressed in a very simple way,  but who is incredibly talented. I meant in an unconscious way,  not in a simple way. For example,  I always remember Kendji Girac. So Kendji was on the stage and he was very unconscious of what he had. He had,  he was totally unaware of his energy which was very masculine,  very strong,  and err,  I think that's the reason why he is surviving now. Because he has this strengh in him. Many people said: it will be one song and then we"ll see but there is something intriguing,  something interesting and I heard it only in his voice so I turned around and I told myself: ok he is good looking,  and it's going to work. I know it. I'm sure about it   I had seen it at once,  I was the only one who had turned around. I had heard this,  I don't know,  emotion in his voice. And his unawareness of it. But that's the reason why I like all sorts of music. Recently Booba was amazed as I had said he was one of my favorite artists live on stage. Because he's got that thing too. I don't know if you know Booba that much but what he does is very emotional, very strong. Johnny Halliday had that thing,  this emotion in his voice,  and I don't know. People often mention artists who are committed,  as for me I like emotional artists,  emotional voices.


🎵Kendji song🎵


Question: So on this album there is Ice Cream which is the first song you released. It is a sensual pop song with inspirations as you said from Prince and in particular George Michael. On the album did you also found inspiration in artists you like or will there be other influences?


Mika: Yeah,  it's an album dedicated to what I like and people I like. So there are songs about,  one song is about a little place in Italy which is part of,  of my life,  a very little place which is part of my memories. So it's like a postcard,  a love letter to this place. Then there's a love letter to sadness. There's another song that is an open letter to jealousy. There's another song which is an open letter to my mother,  another to my father,  that's how it is. There's a letter to sensuality,  sex and fun that can be associated to it and that's Ice Cream. There's,  there's,  that's how I built my album

 

Question: The stage. Are you thinking about it?


Mika: I'm building it,  not thinking about it, we're building a new show. My aim is that once you're in,  your mouth is open with surprise when you look at the stage and feel the energy. I want a concert inspired by the 90's as if it were a show really in the 90's; sensual,  serious,  fun,  moving,  an explosion that lasts an hour and fourty minutes and it's over. What made me want to do music was watching Prince's shows when I was young,  TV shows,  Michael Jackson shows,  on TV.  I remember,  we used to move the TV to the dining room to watch those shows live. Those shows were truly great with great great artists who knew how to do the show.

 

Question: When is the first date od your tour?


Mika: The first date is in the United States. No one knows it yet but I can tell you,  it starts with New York. It will go everywhere but it gets to Belgium on December 14th.

 

Question: Short question; your favorite clothes?
Mika: err


Question: Well the clothes you like to wear best? That you like to wear because  you feel comfortable in them?
Mika: I don't like jeans. I wear them a bit,  but not much. I don't like to wear them because jeans I don't know,  they...I'm looking at your pants...

 

Girl: Am I wearing jeans? No I'm lucky.
 

Mika: My favorite clothes? Ah my pajamas.  I have a huge collection of pajamas.

 

Girl: Is it true?


Mika: Yeah. And strangely I had started this thing and recently I found out my grand father also had a huge collection of pajamas too.
So maybe it is in my DNA.

 

Girl: That's it. It's genetic.


Mika: Yeah.

I've just edited it a bit as it is such a long interview.  It's very interesting to hear what he is saying about the album.

Thanks so much Anne, indeed a very interesting interview.

That scene with Paloma, oh dear, I can imagine how they both felt. :aah: Songwriting is like a therapy, but just for yourself, and for others who are directly involved in the story it might be like a slap in the face :boxed:. Who knows, maybe it'll eventually help Paloma too, at least she didn't tell Mika to lock away the song forever, guess that's a good sign that at some point she might feel ready to deal with it.

 

I find it interesting that they don't talk about such things in their family, with their loved ones. Maybe that's why Mika learned to listen more to the emotion in a voice than to words.
