This is the way that we love, like its forever. Then live the rest of our life, but not together @andreabocelliofficial @theatro_del_silenzio
Who’s ready for new music? #tinylove
What can I say... it’s been a long day of promo
New York! We are excited to announce that due to popular demand, we have added a second night at @brooklynsteel on 12 September! Tickets go on general sale on Friday this week (Amex pre-sale from tomorrow). See you then! #Mikatour #tinylove
Good energy is so important in a team. It’s the only thing that keeps you going when days and weeks get intense. I am very lucky to have a team around me that is full of equal parts ambition and love. The best parts of the job are often the ones that no one sees. Here we are, Geraldine Fougerat Gay, Maria Grazia Neri and I preparing a really special magazine cover for the autumn. Xx
Gracias con todo mi corazón. Finalmente un concierto en la Ciudad De Mexico. Estoy muy feliz de volver a esta increíble ciudad!!
Brooklyn show sold out! Some of my favorite shows ever have been in New York. So happy to be heading back with new music. ❤️🍎❤️🐛😊
34 degrees outside and I’m wearing a turtle neck. That’s what happens when you are shooting autumn press!
From Miami and then to Florence, Los Angeles, London, Brussels and Amsterdam, I have spent the last two years writing and recording this new album. These are the final days of production tweaks before we move into mixing and mastering. The final push is always the hardest. But we are getting there! Xxx @markbcrew @notpriddy
🌈 I’ve been wanting to say this for a while. This evening, walking around @villedelaon before a show, I came across this street all covered with multicolored umbrellas. An unexpected 🌈 sky in a medieval street a few steps away from a monumental Gothic cathedral. I thought I would take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy #pride weekend. It’s not always easy to be proud. Sometimes it takes a while to get there and the journey can be painful and scary. Sometimes it has to be fought for. God knows how many people have fought suffered and died for it. I owe my own #pride to all those brave men and women who fought and risked everything for the more tolerant and accepting world I am able to live in. I will not take it for granted and hope to do it justice. There is so much more to accomplish but right now I just want to say thanks. Thank you to those who paved the way; the activists, the writers, protesters, journalists. The artists, the singers, the tolerant sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers who accept and love instead of hate. My family. My mother and father and siblings. My friends. But also to those teachers of my childhood who knew I was gay before I ever came out to anyone. Who cultured what they saw as an asset and protected me. Allowing me to find a way to shine, overcome fear and to eventually be #proud of who I am. Thank you. A part of you stays with me always. Happy #pride everyone Mika x
Believe it or not I’m actually working right now. Hello Brussels ✌🏽
After a day of promo. It’s hot. Hanging out with my Ma 🏵⭐️👑🌞
Good evening 🎩
Yesterday we wrapped a two day shoot for my new #icecream video. Surreal, joyful and wickedly fun! For a part of it I had to drive around town in a big vintage Mika Ice Cream truck. I can honestly say that driving that truck around corners whilst singing and bopping was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done!! And you should have seen the way onlookers reacted in the street 🤓🤗 We are already in editing and can’t wait to share the finished video with you very soon. Spot my buddy Moto from yesterday’s posts? Don’t we scrub up well? Xx #icecreamvideo
“I Want It Lying in the Sun”
“I Want Your Ice Cream”
Thirty nine degrees, too hot for the bees... #icecreamvideo
Today was a delicious and surprise day off. Tomorrow however, is back to school. For weather reasons, filming for the #icecream video in Barcelona got delayed by a day. As a result I got to rest and sleep and rehearse with these two amazing women. Over the next few days I will keep you updated with shots from the set. Pray the weather Gods look upon us kindly!! 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🌞🌞🌞🍦
I want to dedicate my post this morning to my contestant on the voice @whitney.off from @thevoice_tf1 I am very proud to have followed this young singer over the past few weeks all the way to victory at the final last Thursday. This image taken by my friend @nikosaliagas is my favorite image of the whole season. It was taken during final rehearsals for our duet singing Bon Iver’s Skinny Love. A moment of grace and emotion. You can check it out on @youtube Thank you @whitney.off to all my talents this year @londonloko @albi_off @gjon.s_tears and the whole team of The Voice, my fellow coaches @jeniferofficiel @sopranopsy4 and @julienclercofficiel the production team and everyone behind the scenes that you never see but that are all part of this big family. @matthieugrelier @nikosaliagas @raniabedia @pascalguix @itvstudiosfr @tf1 @marleneschaff ❤️🙏❤️

When I was writing the song #IceCream I was working out of a home studio 25 minutes outside of the city of Florence in Italy. It was so so hot. Jokingly, I said to my collaborator Dan Black, that the only person who was probably managing to stay cool in this very moment was the statue of David! “Because that ass is made of marble, I’m jealous!” From the very beginning, imagery illustration and lyrics have always come together at the same time. Working from a tiny sketch on the back of a lyric sheet, my sister Yasmine (who also worked with me since the first album Life In Cartoon Motion) then interprets what I have done and makes it look far more beautiful! @dawack #mika #mikaicecream #florence
It’s been getting hot in rehearsals as the temperature has been rising. I’ve been busy getting ready for the first few TV performances of ice cream. My band and I have been dancing, playing and singing away the past few days! Stay tuned TOMORROW for a behind the scenes video 🎥📹. Will show you how we have been building this new performance and training of the new band to bring the best possible show onto the stage, starting with this very first single!! #icecream is available everywhere for streaming right now!
Essential judging equipment (🍦) 😉 I should have brought a few more for the audience!!! #sorryguys 😂😎 #mikaicecream

Finally here is the single cover for Ice Cream! It was written on a day of extreme heat in August. 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. By the end of it I felt lighter and freer. This was one of the last songs written for the new album. The song is a daydream fantasy. Like a heat mirage, and makes me feel like anything is possible. Summer and heat provokes that. The surreal dreamlike state of endless heat soaked afternoons. Pearls of sweat, dreams of summer flings, the smell and feel of a car in summer when you first step into it, the smell of a plastic parasol baking in the sun. The mix of possibility and lazy frustration. Senses and daydreams on the run. Ice cream is available everywhere from Friday! 31.05.19 #mikaicecream #mika #icecream
Moi, Andy et Paris ❤ My partner Andy and I. Every morning starts with coffee and a brainstorm.

My engineer Beatriz has found a new friend.
Samedi c’est mes K.O. Je suis nerveux. Ca va être dur. Je dois prendre des décisions qui sont difficiles car passer de 18 talents à six, il faut être direct, il faut être clair.
Hello from the studio
Reunited with a friend. Found this in San Francisco ages ago. Had it shipped over and only uncovered it now. Brilliant draftsmanship. So much amazing art and sculpture made in Mexico for the Dia De Los Muertos.
