Miguel is offering up a special EP tomorrow (Feb. 26) that features five different renditions of "Waves," a standout track off his third album, Wildheart. The project is appropriately titled Rogue Waves and features an eclectic tracklist that finds the 30-year-old crooner linking up with the likes of Travi$ Scott, Kacey Musgraves, and even Tame Impala.
Today, he shares an unplugged version off the EP that truly highlights how much of a talent he is. His stunning vocals float over the acoustic guitar melody that builds up to the soaring hook, and the performance will have you walking away with a smile on your face. Some behind-the-scenes footage is also available, and it features Miguel with his significant other Nazanin Mandi and his crew vibing out while they piece together this stellar version of "Waves."
Ahead of the release, Miguel is dropping two other cuts from the EP including both Tame Impala and RAC's remixes of "Waves." Tame Impala lends it's psychedelic brand of rock to the track, soaking it with warbling riffs and tripped out keys to create an entirely new washed out version. Indie electronic producer RAC takes a vastly different approach to the track by injecting it with a swift kick of synths to fuel a rage-ready version.
Bump Miguel's "Waves (Joshua Tree Version)" along with Tame Impala and RAC's remixes below and be on the lookout for his Rogue Waves EP when it drops tomorrow. You can catch him at select festivals this coming summer, including Governors Ball in NYC, Bonnaroo, as well as Pitchfork Music Festival.
