The Lebanese-American singer Mika, whose 2007 debut album, "Life in Cartoon Motion", was tremendously successful, announced the release of a CD+book package in late May, followed by a series of acoustic concerts, and by a new album in September. The CD/book "Songs for Sorrow" will be made available for preorder on on May 24th. It is comprised of 4 new songs: "Toy Boy", "Lonely Alcoholic", "Blue Eyes" and "Lady Jane".

"They were inspired by the dark side of the universe of the fairytales, which fascinates me", Mika explained in the Paris office of his record company, Universal. These songs were illustrated by 18 artists, contacted by the 25 years old singer. Among them are some great names of the world of English-speaking graphic artists, such as Jim Woodring (USA) and David McKee (UK). Also featured are British artist Peter Blake, who in 1967 designed the famous cover for the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" album, and fashion designer Alber Elbaz.

"This very personel project offered me a working space free from all commercial pressure, because it devours everything and I was afraid it could ruin my creativity", said Mika, who speaks almost perfect French, as he lived in Paris as a child before his family settled down in London.

Sorry for the imperfections!
