Mike Posner is ready to “Move On” by walking across the United States.
Posner 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 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.”
So he’s decided to start walking across the country on March 1st – a feat that will take him about a year to complete.
He tweeted: “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 18th.
