Mika's 'No Place In Heaven' Special Edition out now

With the terrible terrorist attacks that hit Paris on Friday, Nov. 13, 2015, news of the release of Mika's much-anticipated Special Edition of "No Pleace In Heaven" likely didn't receive much attention over the weekend. So I wanted to highlight it here. My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in France, and the families of the victims of the heinous attacks. 

NEW YORK, NY (November 13, 2015) – MIKA releases No Place In Heaven Special Edition[Republic Records/Casablanca Records] at all digital retailers today. It’s available for purchase HERE.
The platinum-selling international pop impresario expands his critically acclaimed fourth full-length—2015’s No Place In Heaven—with a bonus 14 staples performed live alongside the Symphonic Orchestra of Montreal.
Recorded at the The Orchestra Symphonique de Montreal in Montreal, QC, he adds a new dimension to fan favorites such as “Grace Kelly” and “Elle Me Dit” with accompaniment from the orchestra. His unmistakable voice feels right at home inside these beautiful, bombastic, and booming symphonic arrangements.
No Place In Heaven saw MIKA once again evolve, while simultaneously enchanting pop culture at large. The album bowed in the Top 10 of the U.S. iTunes Pop Albums Chart upon release, going Top 5 in five countries around the globe. People described it as “scrumptious ear candy,” and OUT Magazine proclaimed it, “his most sophisticated, self-assured, yet whimsical album to date.”
Following release, he performed new music on Good Morning America’s annual Summer Concert Series. Online, the music video for the single “Talk About You” racked up over 3.4 million YouTube/VEVO views. He also paid homage to Queen singer Freddie Mercury with the cinematic “Last Party” video directed by renowned fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, which would receive over 2.1 million views. In addition to snapping the album cover photo, this was Lindbergh’s very first collaboration with a music artist. Recently, MIKA has enjoyed high-profile syncs in both Pitch Perfect 2 and Spy.
Outside of music, his influence continues to expand worldwide. MIKA has been a judge on the X Factor Italy and a coach on The Voice France after topping the charts in France with the release “Boum Boum Boum.” He’s also been tapped by watch innovator, Swatch, as a creative ambassador creating striking designs for the line. In addition, he’s collaborated with Italian fashion leader, Valentino, architecting custom suits with the creative directors for his European tour and television appearances.
