Miguel has dubbed himself a free spirit with his latest album, Wildheart. But what does that actually mean? In an interview with PitchFork, the singer breaks down what it means to be a true “wildheart.”
“It means taking the time to know yourself enough to trust your gut. Because when you know who you are and what you stand for, then you’re no longer trying to measure up your decisions with the way they’re perceived by the outside world,” he tells the site. “Other people may think you’re wild, or unconventional, or foolish, but to you it doesn’t matter, because your belief is deeper. It’s rooted.”
The singer adds that it’s also a state of mind. “When you’re wild-hearted, you have to lose sight of yourself at times. And as rewarding as that may be, it can be misunderstood, and your path might take you in a direction where maybe other people can’t go with you,” he adds, “But I just don’t care to do something that doesn’t resonate with who I really am.”
Wildheart is available in stores now.
