Mikky Ekko Announces Solo Debut 'Time'
Most well known for teaming up with Rihanna on her mega-popular ballad "Stay,"  American pop singer Mikky Ekko will be getting the chance to flex his chops further on a forthcoming debut LP, Time.

Though Ekko has released a handful of EPs and singles, Time will be his first studio full-length, and it arrives January 20 through RCA. The 12-song album includes his recent "Smile" single, which has now been given a reworking Hippie Sabotage. You'll find the video for the original track and a stream of the remix down below.

Ekko will be teasing the album on the road when he opens for Alt-J next month. As previously reported, the trip includes stops in Toronto and Montreal. Ekko has additional North American dates coming up in December with HAERTS. You'll find all of the show specifics below.
