New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Grammy-nominated, worldwide multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter and producer Mike Posner ("I Took a Pill in Ibiza," "Cooler Than Me"), follows up the recent show-stopping performance of his current single "Song About You" on CBS's The Late Late Show with James Corden, with the news that A REAL GOOD KID, his long-awaited third album will be released on January 18, 2019, via Island Records. Pre-order is available now here and includes newly revealed track "Stuck In The Middle."

"Song About You," the first track released off the upcoming album, strikes a recognizable chord inside everyone who's had their own unique thermonuclear meltdown of the heart: "I think I miss something I never had," Mike sings. The track has already amassed over 20 million streams and hit the charts on three radio formats (Top 40, Alternative, Hot AC)."I think I miss something I never had,"the first track released off the upcoming album, strikes a recognizable chord inside everyone who's had their own unique thermonuclear meltdown of the heart: "Song About You,"

The creation and completion of A REAL GOOD KID encompassed an extraordinary two year-plus period for Mike as he moved back into the house outside Detroit where he grew up, in order to stay with his terminally ill father during his final months. The album, which tells his story, deals heavily with love, loss and eventually acceptance.

A number of tracks on the album - "Stuck In the Middle," "How It's Supposed To Be," "Move On," "One More Song" - find Mike coming to terms with the circumstances that real life sent his way. Mike emerges as a musician and storyteller, finding in his melodies and lyrics that beginnings always do hide themselves in ends. (Full tracklist below.)

Since 2009, multi-platinum pop singer and songwriter Mike Posner has quietly become one of the world's most inescapable and recognizable voices. In 2010, his debut, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, yielded the double-platinum "Cooler Than Me" and platinum-certified "Please Don't Go" and "Bow Chicka Wow Wow." In between tours with artists such as Justin Bieber, Mike became one of the industry's most sought after hitmakers. He's the man behind a string of smashes including Maroon 5's six-times platinum "Sugar," Justin Bieber's triple-platinum "Boyfriend," and Labrinth ft. Emeli Sandé 's "Beneath Your Beautiful," in addition to songs for everybody from Pharrell, Wiz Khalifa, and Big Sean to T.I., Snoop Dogg, and Avicii.

In 2016, Mike's second full-length album, At Night, Alone, included the ubiquitous RIAA 4x-platinum smash "I Took A Pill In Ibiza"—which has amassed 3 billion worldwide streams, went Top 10 in 85 countries, held #1 on Top 40 for two weeks straight, made history as "one of Spotify's Top 10 Most Streamed Songs of All Time," and earned Mike a 2017 Grammy® nomination for "Song of The Year."

Along the way, Mike performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, Ellen, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Live with Kelly, and Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve. Industry pundit Bob Lefsetz described his Grammy Museum show as "the most meaningful gig in memory." Mike has also received comprehensive features from CBS This Morning, NPR, Billboard, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and many more.
