Mikky Ekko's new album FAME is here.
The 11-track project, all written or co-written by the singer and produced by Eric Church and Cage the Elephant collaborator Jay Joyce, arrived Friday. It was recorded at Nashville's Vault and Neon Cross studios.
"The album is me finding my way through a labyrinth and the emotions I experienced along the way," says Ekko of the newly released record. "Anyone can fake it…it’s easy to put on hats, show people one thing and mime the rest…but at the end of the day you have to look at yourself in the mirror and say, 'This is who I am,' and I wanted to give people access to who I am with this album."
The new record follows Ekko's breakout success in 2012 with Rihanna collaboration "Stay," leading into his 2015 debut album Time. He has spent much of the past year on the road, including festival stops at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.
