Over the last decade, Miguel's established himself as one of R&B's most sonic fabulists, a consummate artist unafraid to follow his impulses wherever they lead him. His fourth studio full-length, War & Leisure, is his most ambitious and stunning project yet, a perfect blend of forward-thinking production and melodic delights that more than embody the duality hinted at in the album's title. This is Miguel fusing the two halves of his creative id—the restless experimentalist and the crowd-pleasing hit maker that millions of fans adore—to reach a new peak in artistic achievement. Following the mind-blowing and thoroughly sensual Wildheart in 2015, Miguel conceived War & Leisure's twelve pop gems over the course of the last year and a half—a process that allowed him to find himself amidst the increasing chaos of the modern world. "It's my best way of describing the now," he explains when discussing the album's yin-and-yang title, which reflects the music's focus on the passion and pain of everyday life. "Anything that's in my conscious world, and what's feeding my subconscious—it's all war and leisure." What resulted in these sessions is an album that finds Miguel perfectly blending the skyward pop of 2012's Kaleidoscope Dream and the restless, moody vibes of Wildheart—reflecting the true Miguel experience for both listeners and the album's creator. "On every project, I'm trying to paint a picture for my future self to go back, listen, and remember my experiences and how I was perceiving the world through music," he states on the mercurial meeting point that War & Leisure reaches. "Kaleidoscope Dream and Wildheart are two sides of the same coin, and this is me taking those sounds and applying all the energy I'm feeling most from those two contrasts." And that energy is felt throughout War & Leisure, from the looselimbed funk of "Pineapple Skies" and the atmospheric club vibes of "Skywalker" to the body-moving "Caramelo Duro" and the contemplative ecstasy of
