Watch Miguel Cover Slaves’ “Hey” On BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge

Miguel is gearing up for the release of his new album, WILDHEART, from which he’s already debuted a bunch of songs as well as a steamy video for the lead single “Coffee.” Miguel is an R&B singer with an ear for psychedelia and seems just as inclined to freewheeling guitar frenzies as Brown Sugar sensuality, so it’s not a huge surprise that he chose to cover a song from“>English post-punk duo Slaves for his BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge appearance. He completely nailed the cover, and this will honestly probably boost the band’s exposure quite a bit. Their original is great, too; listen to it here and watch Miguel’s take below.

WILDHEART will be out 6/29 via RCA. Pre-order it here.
