Mika has just announced his fifth studio album “My name is Michael Holbrook” set for release October 4.
First single is “Ice cream”, a summery catchy track produced by Mark Crew, Dan Priddy & Daniel Black.
“It was written on a day of extreme heat” said Mika in a statement. “It was the last few weeks of writing for the album; a writing period that lasted two years. Through the writing I had confronted personal, serious and at times painful issues, now I felt lighter and freer”.
“The song is a daydream fantasy. Like a heat mirage, and makes me feel like anything is possible” he added.
Following the release of the album, Mika is also heading for an European tour.
“Ice cream” follows previous singles “Sound of an orchestra” and “It’s my house“.

Lyrics:

When I hear that sound
I know what’s coming ’round
Thirty-nine degrees
Too hot for the bees
The grass is turning yellow
Streets are slow and mellow
The faucet keeps on dripping
And the clock, it keeps on ticking

The swimming pool is laughing with its shining bright blue teeth
Laughing at my body as it’s sweltering with heat
The smell of colored plastic baking in the sun
Sweet just like frustration, my senses on the run

I want your ice cream
I want it lying in the sun
I want your ice cream
I want it melting on my tongue
I want your ice cream
I want it, what you’re waiting for?
Ice cream, everybody
All I want is more

Ice cream

Filling up the car
The red door burns my thigh
How is this place just standing
With the temperature so hot
Even ground so heavy
Thick with gasoline
My hands will keep me steady
Harder than I’ve ever been

The swimming pool is laughing with its shining bright blue teeth
Laughing at my body as it’s sweltering with heat
The smell of colored plastic baking in the sun
Sweet just like frustration, my senses on the run

I want your ice cream
I want it lying in the sun
I want your ice cream
I want it melting on my tongue
I want your ice cream
I want it, what you waiting for?
Ice cream, everybody
All I want is more

Ice cream

I want your ice cream
I want it lying in the sun
I want your ice cream
I want it melting on my tongue
I want your ice cream
I want it lying in the sun
I want your ice cream
I want it melting on my tongue
I want your ice cream
I want it, what you waiting for?
Ice cream, everybody
All I want is more
