Mike Posner to release book of poetry

Mike Posner is set to release a book of poetry.

The star - who recently reach number one on the Billboard Mix/Show Airplay chart and number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in America with 'I Took A Pill In Ibiza' - has revealed a new side to his career following the release his second album.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, he said: "I just put out my album 'At Night, Alone' and another album, 'Secret Project' coming soon before the end of this year and I wrote a book of poetry that's coming out soon."

The 28-year-old musician made his big comeback this year following a quiet six years since his hit track 'Cooler Than Me' was released and he has shared his struggle to recreate its success; while writing songs for other artists such as Justin Bieber and Labrinth.

He said: "I made two albums that got shelved by my label; my songs just didn't sell as well I guess. There was a gap in between for you guys, for me I was always with myself, I was always making music. But basically I was just making music that was less popular and my fans; they know all the stuff in between. I don't know why, some stuff gets more popular than others. I wish I knew why; I would make all popular stuff."
