Traveling back to an R&B landscape where acts like Frank Ocean and the Weeknd were just beginning to generate some serious excitement, the singer Miguel’s December 2010 debut All I Want Is You became overlooked, which was the dual product of both the record’s innate subtlety as well as some good old-fashioned label drama. Since then, he’s been making more blown-out, dense stuff — for good examples of this, revisit his past Mixtape Of The Week honoree Art Dealer Chic Vol. 1-3 — and his new LP, Kaleidoscope Dream, furthers the singer’s strengthening, idiosyncratic vision. Today, the record hit the web, and you can listen at NPR. Kaleidoscope Dream is out 10/2 on RCA.
