Sony Music Entertainment Australia is proud to announce Mikky Ekko’s debut album TIME is set for release on January 23rd. The new album will soon be available for pre-order.
TIME features collaborations with Dave Sitek, Jeff Bhasker, Stargate, Dennis Herring, Clams Casino, Blood Diamonds, Justin Parker, Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco.
Praised as a “powerhouse vocalist” (The Fader), Mikky Ekko has been described as a “rising secret star among a tiny cadre of multitalented producers, instrumentalists, and singer-songwriters who are blowing up solely from the genre spanning power of their music” (Nylon). Ekko is “The kind of artist that is able to balance creative production and arrangement with traditionally well-written music” (Pigeons & Planes).
Following the release of his single ‘Kids’ in 2013, Mikky released an EP of songs taken from his performance at the 2013 iTunes Festival in London when he opened for Justin Timberlake. Ekko also co-wrote, produced and was featured in Rihanna’s single ‘Stay’ which became one of the biggest hits of 2013, selling over 10 million tracks worldwide peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earning Ekko a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Duo/Collaboration. He also delivered a memorable live performance of the song with Rihanna at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
Ekko was recently nominated for a 2014 MTV Video Music Award with David Guetta for “Best Video with a Social Message” for the song ‘One Voice’, which the two recorded for the United Nations’ “The World Needs More” campaign. Mikky’s music has already been licensed in True Blood, The Blacklist, Grey’s Anatomy, Orange is the New Black, Homeland, and more.
