Tomorrow

MIKA

Universal

Radio Date: 20/09/2019

 

MIKA

TOMORROW 
UNA CANZONE BANDIERA DELLA LIBERTÀ DELL’AMORE

 

Il nuovo singolo in radio e in streaming da venerdì 20 settembre
in vista del nuovo album My Name Is Michael Holbrook
 che sarà disponibile dal 4 ottobre.

 

Dodici concerti in Italia da Novembre con il Revelation Tour.

 

 

Mika continua le anticipazioni sul suo nuovo album pubblicando il secondo singolo ufficiale, Tomorrow, un brano passionale scritto da Mika stesso con Fyfe e prodotta da Mark Crew e Dan Priddy. Mika ha spiegato che Tomorrow “ruota attorno all’'atto di prendere una decisione in un momento di bollente passione e inquietante paura: buttarmi in una relazione amorosa che già so essere avventata e pericolosa, o non far nulla e andare sul sicuro? Alla fine la decisione è chiara: chi se ne importa del domani, scelgo di vivere per l’amore e non al comando della paura. E’ una canzone sulla libertà di non avere paura delle conseguenze, di quello che gli altri pensano.”

 

In attesa di scoprire l’album My Name Is Michael Holbrookper intero dal 4 ottobre, sono già uscite la hit estiva Ice Cream, e i brani Tiny Love, Sanremo, Dear Jealousy e ora ancheTomorrow.Sono già usciti i video delle prime due, mentre i tre successivi sono in lavorazione.

 

Frutto di due anni di scrittura tra le pareti domestiche tra Miami, Londra e la campagna toscana, My Name Is Michael Holbrookci porterà a scoprire l’essenza dell’identità di Mika, a partire dal suo nome anagrafico, passando per i rapporti familiari e un bagaglio di piccole e grandi esperienze, tra momenti di leggerezza e struggenti episodi chiave della sua vita e della sua famiglia, come spiega Mika stesso: “Sono andato alla ricerca di chi avrei potuto essere, se non fossi stato Mika. Certi artisti si cimentano con un alter ego artistico, dal grandioso David Bowie con Ziggy Stardust, fino a Beyoncé con Sasha Fierce. Io ho fatto il contrario, sono andato a scoprire l’uomo dietro l’artista.”

 

L’eclettico protagonista di una straordinaria carriera artistica (che si è articolata in attività diverse come il design e la partecipazione e realizzazione di grandiosi show televisivi come Stasera CasaMika e X Factor in Italia e The Voice in Francia) ha deciso di riportare il focus totalmente sulla musica. A dodici anni dal debutto stellare di Life In Cartoon Motionche fu lanciato dalla hit colossale Grace Kelly, il nuovo progetto arriva dopo 4 album in studio, 1 album in concerto sinfonico, 1 raccolta antologica, 23 singoli e 4 DVD live che gli hanno fruttato certificazioni d’oro e di platino in 32 Paesi del mondo per oltre 10 milioni di dischi venduti.

 

In questi giorni Mka è impegnato con il Tiny Love Tiny Tour, un tour tra teatri e club nel Nord America con date sold out a New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Montreal e Città del Messico. A Novembre porterà le nuove canzoni e i suoi straordinari successi in un tour a grande scala, con uno spettacolo in giro per l’Europa. Il Revelation Tourcomincia a Londra il 10 Novembre, per proseguire in Spagna, Francia, Italia, Svizzera, Olanda, Belgio e Lussemburgo. Il tour italiano promosso da Barley Arts si articolerà in ben 12 tappe nelle grandi arene di altrettante città, un record per un artista internazionale di grosso calibro.

Google translate of the interesting part of the text Eriko posted:

 

Did Mika explain that Tomorrow "revolves around the act of making a decision in a moment of hot passion and disturbing fear: throwing myself into a love affair that I already know is rash and dangerous, or doing nothing and playing it safe? In the end the decision is clear: who cares about tomorrow, I choose to live for love and not in command of fear. It's a song about the freedom of not being afraid of the consequences, of what others think. "

So, putting together what we have, I think except for the line with the leather seat we're doing pretty well. :teehee: Good teamwork! :hi5:

 

 

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, (Tomorrow)

 

You and I we're really

really not so innocent

Consequences won't be easy

From here every road leads to regret

 

But if this ain't what you wanted

Then why'd you even come here, it's 2am

If this isn't what you wanted

Then why did you put a smiley in your message then

 

Backseat, laid on

Window open, staring

 

So kiss me in the backseat of my vintage Benz

Oh who gives a shit about tomorrow

When it comes we can worry then

Oh who gives a shit about tomorrow

And then we're lying on a thousand stars

Oh who gives a shit about tomorrow

When you know how lucky we are

Oh tomorrow  worry about tomorrow

 

Lying here together

Stretching every second into more 

I know you're getting nervous

But this is a mess worth fighting for

 

If this isn't what you wanted

Why'd you even come here, it's 2am

If this isn't what you wanted

Why'd you put a smiley in your message then

 

T-Shirt off, breeze coming in

The leather seat (...)

 

So kiss me in the backseat of my vintage Benz

Oh, who gives a shit about tomorrow

When it comes we can worry then

Oh who gives a shit about tomorrow

And then we're lying on a thousand stars

Oh who gives a shit about tomorrow

When you know how lucky we are

Oh tomorrow we'll worry about sorrow

 

(If?) you'll be there tomorrow

then I'll love you

 

Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow

 

So kiss me in the backseat of my vintage Benz

Oh, who gives a shit about tomorrow

When it comes we can worry then

Oh who gives a shit about tomorrow

And then we're lying on a thousand stars

Oh who gives a shit about tomorrow

And we know how lucky we are

Oh tomorrow we'll worry about tomorrow

I made a few minor clarifications -- I think we are nearly there, it's just impossible to hear what he says after "leather seat" -- hopefully it will be clearer on the recording! Also, I noticed he says a few things differently depending on which video you're watching... again, I guess we'll get the "official" words soon enough. :)

Studio version :wub2: Did I ever say how much I love him? :fangurl:

Thank you Deb :hug:

Could the missing words be: "catching on"?

I totally understand why Mika decided to make a live CD and DVD. I love Tomorrow studio version to bits but the live version is a lot more stronger and emotional and I think I love it even more :swoon::fangurl:

Translation of Tomorrow into French (updated and shared by Mika in his story :swoon::cloud: )

 

Demain, Demain, (Demain)

 

Toi et moi on n'est vraiment

vraiment pas si innocents

Les conséquences ne seront pas simples

A partir d'ici chaque chemin conduit aux regrets

 

Mais si ce n'est pas ce que tu voulais

Alors pourquoi venir ici,  il est  2 heures du matin

Si ce n'est pas ce que tu voulais

Alors pourquoi aurais- tu mis un smiley dans ton message

 

Sur le siège arrière, lumières éteintes

La fenêtre ouverte,  la radio allumée

 

Alors embrasse moi sur le siège arrière de ma Benz de collection

Oh on s'en fout de demain

Quand demain sera là alors on pourra s'inquièter


Oh on s'en fout de demain
(Alors embrasse moi)
Sous la lumière de milliers d'étoiles


Oh on s'en fout de demain

When tu sais à quel point on est chanceux

Oh demain on s'inquiètera de demain (demain)

 

Allongés là ensemble

On s'étire et on se rapproche chaque seconde un peu plus

Je ressens ton stress

Mais ce gâchis en vaut la peine

 


Mais si ce n'est pas ce que tu voulais

Alors pourquoi venir ici,  il est  2 heures du matin

Si ce n'est pas ce que tu voulais

Alors pourquoi aurais- tu mis un smiley dans ton message

 
 

Les t-shirts enlevés , la brise entre

Le siège en cuir colle à la peau

 

Alors embrasse moi sur le siège arrière de ma Benz de collection

Oh on s'en fout de demain

Quand demain sera là alors on pourra s'inquièter


Oh on s'en fout de demain
(Alors embrasse moi)
Sous la lumière de milliers d'étoiles


Oh on s'en fout de demain

Quand on sait à quel point on est chanceux

Oh demain on s'inquiètera de la tristesse

 

Dis moi que tu seras là demain

alors je t'aimerai

 

Demain, demain, demain,  demain
 

Alors embrasse moi sur le siège arrière de ma Benz de collection

Oh on s'en fout de demain

Quand demain sera là alors on pourra s'inquièter

Oh on s'en fout de demain

Alors embrasse moi

Sous la lumière de milliers d'étoiles

Oh on s'en fout de demain

Et tu sais comme on est chanceux

Oh demain on s'inquietera de demain

I really, really it's "catching on to this" or "catching on to something" (more likely the latter) and I honestly can't make it out better than that, it's driving me crazy. I'm just listening to that part over and over because it's bothering me too much.

Doesn't he sing "leather seat catching on fire"? 

And "fire" is sung more by backing vocals cause he starts chorus at tha same moment. That's the only sentence that makes sense to me 

I really looove this song:wub2: Is it just me or he sounds a little different on this one, especially in the chorus?

And why this mainstream sound again? Tomorrow has the same problem as Dear Jealousy, Sanremo and even Ice Cream. The melody is great, the sound is too pop, too simple, too flat. After 4 albums and Tiny Love I know Mika can do better. I have this feeling I don't like that that special Mika's sound was really Greg Wells's sound. Good thing is all the songs seem to sound much better live and we'll have a live album.

I do hear the words "catching on" but I can't hear what's after that. Grrr. I'm like you, listening to it over and over, trying to figure it out.


And earlier, I think it's stereo on, not staring... but still not 100% sure.

 

I updated my earlier post, with a few minor changes so it matches the studio version, rather than the live versions we've heard so far.  We're very close, regardless!

Okay, it's definitely "stereo on" I hear that, and it's "leather seat catchin onto skin" according to lyric genius.

Yes, that could be it, makes sense as well.

 

I think it's also "If you say you'll be there tomorrow" - because I can hear he sings something before "say". Some things are hard to understand, because he's singing another melody at the same time.

 

I'm still not sure about how much I like the song. I'm certainly not as excited about it as I am about Tiny Love and Dear Jealousy. I like some musical arrangements in the recorded version that I hadn't noticed in the live videos. Well, maybe when I see it live the song will click with me - but someone here compared it to Good Wife, and that for me also always was and still is a nice song, but nothing special. Maybe it's the same for me with Tomorrow.

I loved this song from the first listening of the live version, and I agree with you, the recorded version it's nice, but it clearly didn't get the best production... it's a shame, because it could have been much much better.  Anyway, I really like it and think that this would have been the best choice for the first single and has all the qualities to be played on the radios :wub2:

I agree with that lyric too! It Also makes more sense that way to me. 

 

I totally get this. I actually really liked it live and the way he introduced the song really hyped it up in my mind but reading the lyrics it sounds almost... Immature? Something about a 36 year old man singing about texting and emojis just rubs me the wrong way. But at the same time, it reminds me of being a teenager (not that long ago!) and being reckless because I wanted to be loved. I think it's a very relatable song (except for having a vintage Benz, can't relate) so that's the appeal. Maybe you'll change your mind, but you don't have to like every Mika song and that's okay.

Haha yes.

 

'Who gives a s**t about tomorrow' is the line that really throws me off though, it doesnt sound liberating or whatever just ... vacuous and teenage angsty.
