Mike Posner to Launch Exclusive Weekly Show on SIRIUS XM (Updated)

screencap 2010-07-28 at 2.16.45 PM

SIRIUS XM Radio today announced the launch of a weekly show hosted by Mike Posner, the young phenom and mixtape superstar, whose music has risen to the top of the charts.

Posner — singer, songwriter, producer and recent Duke University graduate — received critical acclaim when he self-released two mixtapes and signed a record deal with J Records while still in school. The Detroit native received his diploma from Duke as his song, “Cooler Than Me,” was rising on the Billboard charts and he was preparing to hit the road with the Warped Tour. The smash single “Cooler Than Me” has sold more than 1.1 million downloads to date and risen to No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

His debut album, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, will be released on August 10. Posner co-wrote and/or co-produced every track on 31 Minutes to Takeoff, which also features collaborations with Benny Blanco (Ke$ha, Katy Perry, 3OH!3), Boyz II Men, Travis Barker and songwriter Teddy Riley.

His weekly SIRIUS XM show, The Mike Posner Show, debuts on September 10 on SIRIUS XM’s Faction (SIRIUS channel 28/XM channel 52), SIRIUS XM’s 100% commercial-free music and action sports lifestyle channel. The show will air Friday nights at 9:00 pm ET. On his SIRIUS XM Faction show, Posner will play the jams he likes and talk about his life as he navigates the best-selling music charts and his newfound popularity.

“It is going to be so fun to document what happens in my life in such a refreshing manner. Plus, I can’t wait to show people all the cool music they’ve been missing,” said Posner. “My show is going to have the best playlist ever!”

“When SIRIUS XM first started playing Mike’s music a few months ago, we knew we had to do something more to bring this exciting new talent to a national audience,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SIRIUS XM. “Already having found a large online audience for his unmistakable and unduplicated sound, SIRIUS XM will bring his unique voice to millions of car radios every single week.”

Posner recently announced his first headlining club tour, The Up In The Air Tour, produced by Live Nation. Fans can receive exclusive access to pre-sale tickets for The Up In The Air Tour when they pre-order 31 Minutes To Takeoff at www.MikePosner.com. The Up In The Air Tour will make 22 stops at premier clubs throughout the country, with shows confirmed through October 15 in Toronto, Canada at the Mod Club.

Update:


SIRIUS XM Radio today announced that it will premiere Mike Posner’s highly anticipated debut album 31 Minutes to Takeoff on August 1, over a week before its official release. Posner is the young phenom and mixtape superstar whose music has risen to the top of the charts.

SIRIUS XM will debut 31 Minutes to Takeoff August 1 at 10:00 pm ET on SIRIUS XM Hits 1 (SIRIUS channel 1) and XM’s 20 on 20 (XM channel 20). 31 Minutes to Takeoff (J Records) officially goes on sale August 10.

“I can safely say the record sounds like absolutely no other music on the market,” said Posner. “I couldn’t be more excited for SIRIUS XM to unveil the album in such a major fashion. Time will reveal the significance of the events of August 1st.”

SIRIUS XM announced this week that Posner will launch his own SIRIUS XM show, The Mike Posner Show, on September 10 on SIRIUS XM’s Faction (SIRIUS channel 28/XM channel 52), SIRIUS XM’s 100% commercial-free music and action sports lifestyle channel.

Coach K on Mike Posner

On SIRIUS XM, Posner joins another accomplished Duke luminary, men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, who hosts his own talk show, Basketball and Beyond with Coach K, on SIRIUS XM’s Mad Dog Radio channel. While at Duke, Posner produced a song that played in famed Cameron Indoor Stadium to introduce the team before Blue Devils basketball games.

“Duke students are known for balancing their studies with extracurricular activities, but what Mike has done is really extraordinary,” said Coach K. “It’s terrific to see someone accomplish so much at such a young age and I look forward to having another Blue Devil on our team at SIRIUS XM.”
