Win Limited-Edition Mika EP

Arjanwrites_mikaep is giving away three limited-edition copies of Mika's new EP that features the songs "Relax," [MP3] "Happy Ending" and his upcoming single "Grace Kelly."

Mika told me that "Grace Kelly" is the song that eventually got him signed to a major label. After record label executives first heard Mika's distinct pop sound, they refused to believe it could sell well. However, the success of bands like Scissor Sisters slowly changed their tune. In the meantime, Mika started to work in the Bee Gees' studio in Miami and recorded "Grace Kelly. "I wrote 'Grace Kelly' as a screw you song to those label people that wanted me to change who I was," Mika tells "But ironically, one year later, it was the song that got me signed!"

Enter a random drawing to win the very exclusive Mika EP after the jump. Contest will close on January 7, 2007.


Put your name in the bucket and have chance to win the Mika limited-edition EP in a random drawing.
