'The Origin of Love' album has been a critical success on both sides of the Atlantic. The Guardian gave the album 4 stars calling him 'one of the UK's most underrated songwriters' whilst Q Magazine also gave it a 4 star review describing the album as 'persuasive, likeable, grown-up pop'.
Completely self-created and self-imagined, 'The Origin of Love' has been a two-year DIY labour of love for Mika who has put together everything on the record himself, flying around the world under his own steam personally assembling an incredible roll call of collaborators - in addition to Nick Littlemore and Pharrell Williams Mika has also worked with Benny Benassi, FrYars, Greg Wells (Katy Perry, Adele), Klas Ahlund (Robyn's Body Talk) as well as working with some brand new unsigned musicians he found himself online.
This summer has also seen Mika play a live set at the Olympic Games and discuss the Opening Ceremony live on BBC Newsnight.
Mika is currently on a sell-out European tour that has seen him play to over 200,000 fans this summer and recently returned to the UK to headline a storming set at Lovebox and his own show at Heaven which The
Guardian gave a 4 star review saying 'Mika played the pop star to perfection'.

Thursday 13th December London Roundhouse
Friday 14th December Manchester HMV Ritz
Sunday 16th December Glasgow O2 ABC
