Following the recent promotional track "Make You Happy", British singer-songwriter Mika gives fans now the official first single from his forthcoming third studio album "The Origin of Love", which is scheduled for release next September 16th, 2012 via Universal Republic! Produced by Empire of the Sun's Nick Littlemore, and featuring guest vocals by N.E.R.D's Pharell Williams, "Celebrate" is an uplifting upbeat pop record, reminiscent of the party club songs of the late 70s and 80s, in which Mika gives his trademark falsetto a rest for a change, and shows us his 'natural' voice taking it down a few octaves.
It's not terrible, but I never thought Mika would go on this direction..."Celebrate" is very generic. I know I'll play it now, and probably will listen to it tomorrow too, but after that, I'm sure it'll fall into quick oblivion. Mika's new single has nothing exciting about, you know. I think I even liked the buzz cut "Make You Happy" better, lol. Anyway, maybe a super cool music video can help!
