One of the tastier concoctions from Miguel‘s imminently forthcoming LP Kaleidoscope Dream (stream it right here and pre-order it here via iTunes) has leaked (splashed?) onto the web today, namely the wistful seduction song “How Many Drinks.” With a melancholy guitar line ever-so-slightly reminiscent of Sade‘s “Lover’s Rock” (we know he gots love for Miss Adu, because he drew her portrait on his t-shirt) but with a quicker tempo and jazzier movement to it, this lyric pretty much certifies the idea that a soul singer’s job is to express–with more class, artful phrasing and emotional depth–what remains unsaid in the hearts of us mortal men. Stream below.
