News: MKTO Releases New Album

1 min read

(AUSTRALIA) Dynamic duo MKTO have released their debut self-titled album which is available to purchase now through all retailers. The album is already off to a great start reaching the #1 position on the iTunes chart within hours of release.

In early 2012, MKTO signed a new partnership with longtime musical collaborators Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou and Evan “Kidd” Bogart. The two, who stumbled upon the guys’ video for ‘Champion’ online, have been responsible for hits from Beyonce, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Hot Chelle Rae, Sean Kingston, Jason Derulo and many more. MKTO felt that this formidable creative partnership was the perfect hit song breeding ground for their diverse song style, and set about writing their debut album.

Since signing with Columbia Records in late 2012, MKTO have been riding a wave of success. Their debut single ‘Thank You’ peaked at #2 in the Australian ARIA Charts, achieving 4 x Platinum sales, and a top 5 radio hit. Following in its footsteps, ‘Classic’ was another pop hit that peaked at #3 on iTunes, top10 airplay and achieved triple Platinum sales. The duo’s current single, ‘God Only Knows’ is another infectious pop hit, already achieving Platinum sales and is currently making its way up the airplay chart.
