Miguel returns with new song “Funeral”

His last album War & Leisure was released in 2017.

November 01, 2019

One of my favorite live concert videos shows Miguel miming sex in front of hundreds of screaming fans, their cries almost as distorted as the sounds of the band. It's a perfect encapsulation of the Johnny Bravo-like side of his public persona, even if it erases his status as a supreme pop-R&B talent. "Funeral," Miguel's first brand new solo single since his 2017 album War & Leisure, begins with the line: “Send my regards to the mother and father / ‘Cause somebody’s daughter I just fucking slayed.” He's still horny, folks, and he's going with a dark techno vibe reminiscent of Starboy-era Weeknd to announce his return. Listen to the new single below.
