News: Miguel Details Highly Anticipated New Album ‘Wildheart’

2 min read

Grammy Award winning recording artist Miguel has confirmed the title to his highly anticipated new studio album, Wildheart, to be released this summer on ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records. The album’s first single ‘Coffee‘, and its edgy, re-imagined alternate version, ‘Coffee (F***ing) ft. Wale‘, were produced by Miguel and released today on all digital platforms. Wildheart is the long awaited follow up to Miguel’s 2012 critically acclaimed sophomore release, Kaleidoscope Dream, which spent 20 weeks on the Billboard 200 Album Chart.

Miguel first hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single ‘All I Want Is You,’ from his major label debut album of the same name, a song which blended a stark hip-hop beat with Miguel’s creamy vocals to form a sound that was absent from the radio and established Miguel as one of the most unique and soulful voices in modern R&B. The album also features ‘Sure Thing,’ which hit #1 on Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B chart and second US #1 ‘Quickie.’

Miguel’s follow up was his critically-acclaimed, four-time Grammy Award nominated, sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream (Sony Music Aust), which features his third US #1 hit single ‘Adorn,’ the intoxicating ‘How Many Drinks?’, ‘Do You…’ and ‘The Thrill.’ In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards. Lead single ‘Adorn,’ written and produced by Miguel, garnered Miguel his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks becoming the longest running #1 in the history of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart.
