Miguel Streaming New Album 'Wildheart' Online

(Radio.com) Drop everything, because Miguel's new album Wildheart is streaming now at NPR. The boundary-busting R&B singer hasn't released a new full-length since Kaleidoscope Dream back in 2013, the album climbing to the top of the charts on the strength of singles like "Adorn."

Wildheart doesn't go for the same pop immediacy, but its murky depths are no less entrancing. The album starts off with "a beautiful exit," a heady blend of TV clips, new age-y lyrics, chugging guitars and sky-high harmonies.

Meanwhile, on songs like "DEAL" and "coffee," Miguel deals in thick funk, dripping in distortion and guitar echo. "Before I show you the money let me slide you a pill," he croons on the latter.

The album only features two guest appearances, but they're both big: legendary L.A. rapper Kurupt appears on "N.W.A," and guitar icon Lenny Kravitz shows up to strum a few riffs on album closer "Face The Sun." Read more and grab the streaming link here.
