Mike Posner playing no tricks
Mike Posner doesn't want to "trick people into" liking him by collaborating on his debut album.
The 'Cooler Than Me' singer has enjoyed US success with his album '31 Minutes To Take Off' - on which he sings all the songs - but said he wasn't prepared to compromise any of his tracks by getting a more established star who is more famous than him, to appear as a guest star.
He said: "I have my whole career to work with other people and I felt it was important with my first album to not be tricking people into liking me. And I believe wholeheartedly in my ability to make a great album, to make 12 great songs myself.
"I think as long as it helps the song, I'm not opposed to collaborating with people, and there's a million people I'd like to work with in the future, but you'll see some and it's just like, so obvious, and it's just like 'who cut the cheque', you know, and that's not what music's about."
The US singer also claims fans won't get bored with his record because every track has a completely different sound to it.
He added: "I made a 21st century album. What I mean when I say that, is, instead of pushing 'menu' on your MP3 player and changing artist 12 times, you put on my album once an you won't get bored.
"Every song is as quality as the one which comes before, but different."
'Cooler Than Me' is released in the UK on November 8.Posted on 7 Sep 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
