Mikky Ekko – U (prod. by Blood Diamonds)
With the release of his debut LP Time just around the corner, Mikky Ekko is back today to share the Blood Diamonds-produced cut “U” along with the announcement of his forthcoming tour with Broods. “U” manages to avoid the confines of any specific genre tag, but distills Mikky’s knack for pure pop melodies with beautifully understated production into an album highlight. It comes with the news of his setting out on tour with Broods in March.
Time is set to be released on January 20th 2015 by RCA Records and will feature collaborations with Dave Sitek, Jeff Bhasker, Stargate, Dennis Herring, Clams Casino, Blood Diamonds, Justin Parker, Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco. Check out “U” along with all of Mikky’s upcoming tour dates below.
