Miguel Debuts New Album ‘War and Leisure’

The wait is over. Miguel has returned with the follow up to 2015 album Wildheart. And it is beautiful. Watching his career grow and bloom is quite simply on of the best parts of modern R&B. On War & Leisure, we see Miguel take a stand. He doesn’t dive into the horrific trashcan that is Trump’s ideology, but does not shy away from it either. Moments of backing Colin Kaepernick, and defending the rights of all people shine through. Let us not forget that his father is a Mexican immigrant. All of those things aside, this albums is all of the right parts of Miguel. It moves forward. It blossoms and shimmers.

Earlier this week, Miguel and longtime cohort J. Cole have added some new touches to the 2016 single “Come Through And Chill.” This version features several verses by Cole and an updated stance in politics and sex. It also sees the production work by Salaam Remi. It wass preceded by “Sky Walker,” “Told You So,” and “Pineapple Skies.”

On November 28, Miguel announced his 2018 tour dates behind his upcoming album. The run will kick off on February 22 in Portland, OR at Roseland Theater and wrap up on April 12 in Berkeley, CA at The Greek.

In September, Miguel shared the single, “Shockandawe.” Last month the singer performed in Adelanto, California at a #SchoolsNotPrisonsbenefit show. His set featured a new song “Now.” It speaks about the United States horrific and unAmerican imprisoning of undocumented immigrants. Lucky for us, fans caught the entire performance on video.

War and Leisure is available now via Bystorm Entertainment/RCA.
