Miguel’s upcoming three-part album Kaleidoscope Dream is anchored by the dreamy single, “Adorn.” With a promise to offer fans a real look into his innermost thoughts, Miguel recently explained why he gives more of himself on “Adorn” than any of his previos songs.
“I feel like I’ve been blessed to be a vessel for ['Adorn'],” the singer told Charlotte NC’s WPEG. “I got off the plane and came home and felt these chords for it. It’s a great song that wrote itself,” he said. “It’s the first song I’ve ever wrote and produce.”
With the early success of the record (currently No. 9 on Billboard‘s Hip-Hop/R&B charts), he has plans to handle duel duties on future records.
“This album, I am very much involved in the production,” he said. “It’s more about Miguel and his lifestyle. The first album was like a good handshake. I look you in the eye and say, ‘Hello my name is Miguel how you doing.’ [Kaleidoscope Dream] is like, we sit down and get to have a drink and conversation. You understand where I’m coming from and what it is that I believe and what I think about when I’m by myself.”
Miguel is taking a different approach to releasing Kaleidoscope Dream. The three-part set will be released at three different times. The Water collection is already out on iTunes while the Air set will be out on September 11, and the final chapter will be released on October 2.
