Says Posner, “First of all, I’m so grateful for all the blessings and wonderful people in my life who have supported my creative process. I’m beyond excited to share “The Way It Used To Be” with the world. I love releasing music in the summer when the weather is beautiful and people are happy.”

After signing a deal with RCA Records that summer, Posner returned to Duke University 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 through iTunesU and rocking shows every weekend at colleges and festivals across the country. Just a year after A Matter of Time reached #1 on iTunesU, his debut album 31 Minutes to Takeoff reached #1 on iTunes proper. 25 year old Mike Posner hails from Detroit, MI and currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
