Says Posner on the album title, "Something happens 31 minutes into the record. You're going to have to listen to find out what it is. All I can say is that both the listener and I will be in a higher place when it's over."

Mike Posner co-wrote and co-produced every track on the album, which features collaborations from Benny Blanco (Ke$ha, 3Oh!3), Boys II Men, Smeezingtons (B.O.B), and Travis Barker.

In mid-May the Los Angeles Times declared "Mike Posner is on a quest to be pop's next best thing." This was about a week after Posner opened for Drake at his sold out Nokia Theater show and a mere four days after he walked across the stage in Durham, North Carolina to receive his bachelor's degree from the prestigious Duke University.

In March of 2009, Mike Posner's first mixtape A Matter of Time (recorded in his dorm room) rose to the #1 position on iTunesU, promptly garnering him the attention of major labels. After signing a deal with J Records that summer, Posner returned to Duke to finish up his course load, all the while beginning work on his debut album, self-releasing his second free mixtape One Foot Out The Door (featuring collaborations with 3Oh!3, Bun B, Kid Cudi, Wale) through iTunesU and rocking shows every weekend at colleges and festivals across the country.

Posner played multiple shows during SXSW, including a featured slot at Perez Hilton's "One Night in Austin" sold out party, spent a few dates on the road with Drake, was declared one of Spin.com's "11 Best Moments of Bamboozle" and rocked the finale night of Bonnaroo along with his own sold out headlining gig at The Key Club.

Mike Posner performed on Last Call With Carson Daly in October 2009 and Lopez Tonight in May 2010. He has graced the cover of URB magazine, landed in Entertainment Weekly's "The Bullseye" and been featured in Vibe, XXL, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, RollingStone.com, Spin.com, New York Post, and countless other publications.

22 year old Mike Posner hails from Southfield, MI and currently resides in Los Angeles, CA. He graduated from Duke University in May 2010 with a BA in Sociology and Business.
