Q&A: Mike Posner
He talks second chances, comeback hit "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" and his sophomore LP.

Detroit singer-songwriter Mike Posner performed his rising global hit “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” during the March 18 episode of The Tonight Show.

For this late-night TV gig, Mike struck a balance between the acoustic original and the Seeb club remix that recently became his second Top 10 hit. While playing to bar-ready rock arrangements by house band the Roots, Mike sang his despondent lyrics about trying to impress Avicii and becoming a one-hit wonder (his first was 2010’s “Cooler Than Me”) with an actual smile on his face.

Of course, Mike no longer has to worry about being forgotten by the music industry. On March 17 he announced his sophomore album At Night, Alone, out May 6 on Island Records — an opportunity he might not have received without that Seeb remix.

“Yeah, I learned a lot from that,” he told Idolator recently. “You can’t plan everything. There’s that old saying — if you want to make God laugh, make a plan.”
