In less than a month, Miguel will hit the road for The Ascension North American Tour alongside Canadian duo DVSN. But before he embarks on the 26-date trek, the R&B singer has treated fans to a surprise record called “Python.”
Miguel released the song on his YouTube and SoundCloud accounts on Thursday night, claiming there was more fresh material on the horizon: “Playing new music on The Ascension Tour,” he wrote in the track’s description. “This one is called Python!”
You can listen to the new cut via YouTube above.
The Ascension Tour will kick off Aug. 23 in Boston, followed by stops in Toronto, D.C., Dallas, Las Vegas, and Sept. 28 finale show in Seattle. You can learn more about the concerts at Miguel’s official website.
Miguel also stopped by Australian radio station Triple J to do a cover of the Red Hot Chili Peppers song "Porcelain." Check it out below.
Since the release of his 2017 War & Leisure album, the 32-year-old artist has assisted a number of records, including GoldLink’s “Got Friends,” Meek Mill’s “Stay Woke,” and, most recently, RL Grimes’ “Light Me Up.” Miguel is also expected to release a full-length Spanish-language album sometime in the near future.
“Writing songs in Spanish is one of the things I started exploring after working on this film,” he told Latina in 2017. “I look forward to working on more music in Spanish. It sounds ambitious, but I’m looking to release an album in Spanish later on this year. If nothing else, at least releasing a single or two in Spanish. Hopefully, you guys stay tuned to that.”
