Back in 2006 Mika was the darling of the UK music industry with his Marmite-y but massively successful debut, ‘Life in Cartoon Motion’. Fast forward three years and the last two singles from his second album ‘The Boy Who Knew Too Much’ have failed to make a dent on the UK top 40.
Despite this apparent dip in fortunes Mika is still enjoying great success across Europe, where his latest offering ‘Kick Ass‘ will probably find a more appreciative audience. The song was produced by RedOne, the man behind many of Lady GaGa biggest hits.
As with most Mika songs, ‘Kick Ass’ is rousing, danceable and Queen-esque, but its repetitive nature and high-pitched vocals won’t suit everyone’s tastes.
‘Kick Ass’ features on the soundtrack to Brad Pitt’s new comic-book adaptation of the same name.
