Mike Posner is ready to “Move On” – and he’s going to do it by walking across the entire United States.
He made the announcement in the video for his new single, “Move On,” which details his struggles since he released the hit “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” in 2015.
In the video, which features clips from over the past few years as well as typed messages from Mike, the singer talks about the emotional lows he’s taken over the past few years: His beloved dad died of brain cancer, he broke up with his girlfriend, and his pal Avicii, who he name checked in “Ibiza,” also passed away.
Mike goes on to admit he’s been sad and “feeling off,” but he’s “tired of moping around.”
As part of his plan to live life to the fullest, he’s decided to start walking across the country on March 1 – a feat that will take him about a year to complete. Why, you ask? “Cuz I want to!!!” he writes in the video.
On Twitter, he gives more detail, writing, “I’m excited to announce that starting March 1, 2019, I will be walking across America. I will start at the Atlantic Ocean and end at the Pacific ocean. The journey will take me most of my 31st year. You are welcome to join at any time. See you out there.”
“Furthermore, I will be attempting to practice deep listening on The Walk,” he continues. “What does this mean? i will be spending periods of my walk compassionately listening to people with as much of my full attention as possible. Here goes!”
“Move On” is featured on Mike’s upcoming new album, A Real Good Kid, which comes out January 18.
