Miguel Releases ‘Pineapple Skies’ [LISTEN]
Miguel is gearing up to release his fourth studio project, War & Leisure. On Thursday (Nov. 16), he dropped a new single called "Pineapple Skies."
The song is finger-snapping jam with the R&B singer crooning affectionate lyrics to his lover. The uptempo ballad follows behind his previous released singles, “Sky Walker,” “Shockandawe” and “Told You So.”
In an interview with Billboard, Miguel said that his album will feature his signature love ballads but they will also have political undertones.
“We’re trying not to pay attention, but we have to pay attention,” said Miguel about his project. “With my albums, I always try to take a picture of what’s going on in my life. War & Leisure has political undertones, because that’s what life feels like right now."
"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," he continues. "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?”
Miguel's War & Leisure album will arrive on Dec. 1. You can pre-order the album right now on iTunes.
