Miguel has been keeping a slow drip of new music coming since 2012’s Kaleidoscope Dream, including collaborations with Mariah Carey, Kendrick Lamar, and Janelle Monae, not to mention the fantastic Adult Swim free single “Can’t Sleep Together.” Now he’s back with another one-off, “Simplethings,” which is part of the soundtrack for the TV series Girls. Just like he did on “Can’t Sleep Together,” Miguel combines distorted, jagged production with his own smooth voice with winning results. Mood-setting music of the highest caliber.
