Record due for release on June 15

Mika has announced the release of a new album, ‘No Place In Heaven’.

The LP is due to be released on June 15 via Virgin EMI and follows the singer’s three previous records, ‘Life In Cartoon Motion’, ‘The Boy Who Knew Too Much’ and ‘The Origin of Love’.

‘No Place In Heaven’ will be produced by Gregg Wells, who is best known for his work with Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Rufus Wainwright and Adele, and is to be, according to the press release, “a mature new record” that evokes “memories of classic 70s pop albums”.

Fans who pre-order the album through iTunes will instantly receive a download of the track ‘Last Party’, Mika’s tribute to Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.

Since the release of ‘The Origin of Love’ in September 2012, Mika has appeared as a judge on The X Factor Italy, a coach on The Voice France, and, last year, released the single “Boum Boum Boum”, which featured lyrics entirely in the French language.
