Watch Miguel’s Sexy Short Film, ‘WILDHEART Chapter 1’

First video installment, “Find What You Love and Let It Kill You,” features clips from three ‘Wildheart’ tracks

At an art gallery. In the shower. Between the sheets. Miguel finds plenty of places to get busy in his new short film, “WILDHEART Chapter 1: Find What You Love and Let It Kill You.” The 13-minute project stitches together videos for three songs – “…goingtohell,” “Coffee” and “NWA” – from the neo-soul singer’s acclaimed new LP, Wildheart.

“…goingtohell” finds Miguel romancing his blue-haired companion at an art exhibit. “Only you can save me / I’m a sinner,” he sings over fuzzy psych-rock guitars. Recent single “Coffee” (teased last month as a stand-alone clip) follows the romantic and sexual themes of the lyrics, as the couple spend an evening between the sheets. “Pillow talk turns into sweet dreams / Sweet dreams turns into coffee in the morning,” Miguel croons over the track’s billowing synths. 

The film takes a tonal shift with the skeletal, brooding “NWA,” which finds Miguel strutting through the streets and rapper Kurupt delivering his come-ons from a slow-moving car. “Her skin so silky / Body from a movie like she plastered on a silk screen,” he rhymes.

Wildheart is Miguel’s long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Kaleidoscope Dream, which featured his breakout, Grammy-winning smash “Adorn.” For the new album, the singer wanted to craft “an ode to love of self…  [and] the ongoing infatuation with whatever you’re fucking into,” he recently told Rolling Stone

“This time, it was like I finally want to have an identity as a tastemaker, as someone who’s ahead of the curve, someone who’s intellectual, someone who’s striving to push the boundaries, someone who’s ever-growing and evolving, someone who’s open-minded,” he said.

Last month, Miguel announced a run of North American tour dates, which kick off July 24th in Austin, Texas and run throughout early September.
