The Whiteboard Project

Interview// MIKA

As many of you may already know, MIKA has returned. Set to release his third studio album – The Origin Of Love in September, following a brand new single, and a sold-out show at London’s Heaven, next week (July 26th). After a triumphant performance, headlining this year’s Lovebox festival, in Victoria Park.

So with all of the hype surrounding the chart-topper, we met up with the man him self for an exclusive whiteboard interview. With the setting of his old, West London, flat – which he now uses as a workshop and base whilst writing. So upon arrival, we were greeted by the man himself. Then after a short chat in the kitchen, we got down to the nitty-gritty and introduced the whiteboards.

Firing a series of questions in MIKA’s direction, leaving him to draw the answers and let us take some photographs. Here’s how he got on…

As a warm up question, please draw what you draw best.



What can we expect from your new album – The Origin Of Love?



So what is the origin of love?



Time for a challenge: How many Grace Kelly films can you name in 60 seconds?



Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?



Then finally, what has been the highlight of your career, thus far?
