Mike Posner is back with his first new song in over two years.
The “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” singer has released “Song About You,” the first single off his upcoming as-yet-untitled album. The song paints a picture of a relationship gone sour.
“It was good to make this song because of all the angst that was inside me,” Mike says in a statement. “What do you do with that angst? I put it in a song. Then I don’t have to throw it on another human or on myself.”
He adds, “You can only hope someone feels a sense of beauty or connection out of your suffering – that’s the highest goal as an artist.”
Mike announced the new song on Instagram, along with a video clip that indicates he’s ushering in a new era with this new music. We see the giant paper-mâché head he wore in the “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” video going up in flames, as a bearded Mike sits calmly nearby, meditating with his eyes closed.
