Mika has revealed that his latest album The 'Orgin Of Love' is bound to set new boundaries for pop music.

The 'Celebrate' singer revealed that his latest masterpiece was inspired by his sister, Paloma Penniman's, near-death experience when she fell from the balcony of her flat and was impailed by a set of railings in 2010.

''You can lose everything in five seconds. It was a massive jolt that made me realise, 'You'd better make the most of what's in front of you.' As soon as Paloma was stable, I ran away to make my record,'' the singer told the Daily Star newspaper.

The 29-year-old went onto to reveal how the fateful accident spurred him on to create his new album, which he believes will take pop music into a whole new direction.

''It was a total disaster, yet weirdly positive event too. It's an incredibly joyful record. It's going to take time to catch on as it's not aping anything that's on the radio, but it smashes the current model of what pop songs should be,'' the singer added.

The Origin Of Love was released on September 16th.
