This past week, Yours Truly and Different Fur released the session with R & B artist, Miguel. Engineered by Nic Pope, the video invites you to experience an intimate performance of “The Thrill ” from his latest album, Kaleidoscope Dream (RCA).
The follow up to 2010’s All I Want is You, the album has been garnering a lot of attention for a sophomore release, due to the impeccable combination of pop, funk, soul, and more. Over the course of Kaleidoscope Dream, you are met with hyper sexualized romanticisms, memorable melodies, and lush instrumentation that only grows more alluring with each listen.
“The Thrill” depicts Miguel’s sensual impatience with well delivered lyrics laid over deep bass lines. The official video for the track, which boasts a black and white characterization of the lifestyle you would expect an artist of his caliber to have. In the Yours Truly session, Miguel’s presence is stripped down to its core without any flashy production or attitude that you can often find from the artist. Both he and his band thoroughly exude passion and dedication to their art throughout their performance, a great indicator of staying power.
