This video from Mika is, as far as I know, all anyone has heard from the forthcoming fall release. I absolutely can't wait to hear more. A beautiful video that fills me with that kind of hopeful happiness that almost brings tears to my eyes like a sap watching a romantic comedy. I hope you understand my sentiment when you watch it as well.
Here is what Mika had to say about the piece:
"Here's the first song I wanted you to hear from my new record, "The Origin of Love." This is not a single but a song I really love and wanted to share with you.
I commissioned a short film which I felt perfectly captured the sentiment of the track. The film was directed by Iouri Philippe Paillé and was made in Montreal. This is where the entire album started taking shape a year ago with Nick Littlemore at Planet Studios in Papineau.
I can't wait for you to hear the first single and the rest of the album very, very soon."
