Mike Posner's 'Song About You'
The hitmaker returns with a beard and a brand new sound on 'Song About You.'

Mike Posner can do it all. The singer/songwriter burst onto the scene in 2010 with the pure pop of “Cooler Than Me,” reinvented himself as a club king on the chart-topping remix of “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” and showed off his hip-hop chops as one half of Mansionz. The evolution continues on third LP, A Real Good Kid. While the 30-year-old looks like an extra from a biopic about Woodstock, there’s nothing dated or derivative about “Song About You” (a genre-defying breakup anthem) or new single, “Stuck In The Middle.”

Another densely-layered Ricky Reed production, Mike’s latest is about the inertia that sets in after a life-altering trauma. (The album was inspired by the death of his father). However, the lyrics are just as applicable to someone going through the Return Of Saturn slump. Not that it’s dark or heavy. “Stuck In The Middle” is actually something of a bop that should get love on multiple radio formats. See the tracklist of A Real Good Kid (due January 18) below and stream the song at the bottom of the post.
