    Miguel has just shared his new single "Told You So," which is also accompanied by a brand new video. According to his Instagram, it's one of his favorite visuals and songs off of his forthcoming album War & Leisure.

    The track's stimulating pulse feels danceable, but Miguel goes deeper here. The retro-tinted video interweaves visuals of historical events and massive explosions to set up something intensely politically-charged and topical. All the while, Miguel jams out in the desert, unabashedly dancing and spinning on top of a car.

    Miguel is deliberately making a statement amidst the ominous events that are currently plaguing the world. He told Billboard, "This album is intentionally about the ethos right now, that we are right in the middle of all this. We're trying to flourish in the middle of all this. We all wake up, and it's time to be creative and amazing and positive and all the things that we're supposed to be when you look on Instagram, but then we're dealing with these same problems, this injustice, wars between politicians with egos. Like, 140 characters are going to get us into a war right now?"

    What else does Miguel have in store for us? We'll find out on December 1st, with the release of his fourth studio album War & Leisure.
