  • October brings with it the release of Miguel‘s hotly anticipated sophomore album ‘Kaleidoscope Dream’. Hence so as to further whet appetites, the singer has unveiled the set’s official artwork.

    Now on to the yummy stuff! Yes, the food! We have decided to dedicate a Kaleidoscope Cake inspired by Miguel’s new album, “Kaleidoscope Dream”.

  • Miguel's voice is emerald-colored. Light shines through, but it's not sleeping-bag warm. His falsetto sounds like it was hard to come by, not like he woke up sounding like that. Miguel is not Teddy Pendergrass. He is not Luther Vandross. He's working harder than those guys, but you don't see him sweat. Like Sly Stone, he holds the listener at arm's length. He is closer to Stevie Wonder, Prince and Van Morrison. He is a perfectionist, trying to catch the eye of people looking around for the cheeky R&B of their teenage years, be it Little Richard-level , or in the style of Akinyele or the of Tony! Toni! Tone! Kaleidoscope Dream requires a few twists to bring Miguel's vision into focus — and once you've found it, you'll laugh more then you planned to.

    Miguel's second full length album, which has been released piece by piece over the summer, sounds like the Los Angeles-born singer took a hard look at R&B, pop, rock, funk and "," gleefully smashed those plates and glued them all together. The album's title works: on Kaleidoscope Dream images and sounds repeat, refract and coalesce. But they change places less like the do-si-do and more like the Charleston.

  • Ahead of its Oct. 2 release, blessed our ears with an advance stream of Miguel’s sophomore offering Kaleidoscope Dream. Equipped with both the Water and Air previews, the “Adorn” crooner saves some of the best cuts for last. Listen below.

After previewing new music via two EPs — Kaleidoscope Dream: Water Preview and Kaleidoscope Dream: Air Preview, Miguel has revealed the final track list for full length LP Kaleidoscope Dream that hits stores on October 2nd. The album is led by the smooth cut ‘Adorn’, for which was released recently.
