[FIRST LISTEN] Mika Returns With "Elle Me Dit" French-Language Single


Well, well. Here's a nice and unexpected surprise right before the holiday weekend. After laying low since the release of his Red One-produced "Kick Ass" single in 2010, British pop crooner Mika is premiering a brand-new single in France today.

This new ditty is called "Elle Me Dit," a French langague single with a title that translates to "She Tells Me." The song is taken from Mika's forthcoming new album "The Origins Of Love" that features production work by Empire Of The Sun's Nick Littlemore and William Orbit, the musical brain behind Madonna's "Ray Of Light" project, and Martin Solveig who is flying up the charts worldwide with "Hello."

It has not been confirmed, but judging from that playful dance beat, it sounds like "Elle Me Dit" was produced by Martin Solveig. It is a perfect match for Mika's fun and upbeat vocal riffs. Good to have Mika back. It's been too long and this tune sounds like a winner. (Note: I sent Solveig a note to confirm his involvement with "Elle Me Dit." Stay tuned.)
