[youtube id=”6eFL1zzGK8o”] Miguel’s War & Leisure was released today along with the video for “Now.” The video was filmed at a political rally to bring attention to the injustice of immigration detention center. Interviews with detainees are woven around Miguel’s performance. Miguel spoke about the way Stevie Wonder, Prince and Michael Jackson inspired his politics to Rolling Stone:
“They all pushed the boundaries in their own way. They all challenged us to look at things a different way. I saw that from the artists I love, and I decided I want to do that. To be an artist is to deal with what’s happening in your time.”
Miguel will kick off his War & Leisure tour in February.
