Mika
We Are Golden
(Universal)
Releasing: 22 September


British pop star Mika follows up his 5.6 million selling hit debut Life in Cartoon Motion with We Are Golden this fall. Mika trekked to L.A. to record the tunes for the new album and Greg Wells, who has worked with Pink and Rufus Wainwright, manned the production booth. Judging from the debut video “We Are Golden”, we’re in for more catchy pop with more than a trace of Freddie Mercury-esque vocals.
