Fresh off the release of his newest album, War & Leisure, Miguel performed revamped versions of the album’s singles for Vevo.
Backed by a band at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere venue, the Los Angeles crooner delivered soulful vocals over live instrumentation. While staying true to the original material, the performance also featured a rock-infused edge to the funk, soul, blues, and R&B.
Dancing across the stage, Miguel performed “Pineapple Skies” and “Sky Walker.” Dressed in a white hoodie under a velvet burgundy robe, he danced across the stage smoothly, as his band rocked out behind him. Warm and cool fluorescent lights appeared around the crew while stunning angles captured their rhythmic movements.
“Pineapple Skies” and “Sky Walker” are singles off War & Leisure. “Part of this album’s purpose was finding a balance between being aware of what’s going on and not letting it weigh me down,” Miguel told Vevo, who will reveal additional performances of “Told You So” and “Come Through and Chill” tomorrow.
