Well here it is. After months of promotion, which included hearing songs like “Sky Walker,” “Told You So,” & “Pineapple Skies” to name a few, Miguel’s highly anticipated 4th studio album, War & Leisure, has finally arrived today.
Laced with 12 tracks in total, the follow up to 2015's WildHeart LP features guest appearances from Travis Scott, J. Cole, Salaam Remi, Rick Ross, Kali Uchis, and more. Meanwhile, production comes from the likes of Happy Perez, Salaam Remi, Detail, Miguel himself & more.
Speaking on the album in a recent interview with Billboard, Miguel says he’s becoming more politically in-tune with his audience for the upcoming project. "War & Leisure has political undertones, because that’s what life feels like right now," Miguel said. "This album is intentionally about the ethos right now, that we are right in the middle of all this. We’re trying to flourish in the middle of all this. We all wake up, and it’s time to be creative and amazing and positive and all the things that we’re supposed to be when you look on Instagram, but then we’re dealing with these same problems, this injustice, wars between politicians with egos. Like, 140 characters are going to get us into a war right now?”
