Miguel has released a seductive new track, "Can't Sleep 2gether," which finds the R&B singer restless despite lighting up and watching The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reruns. Over a sparse, shimmering synth beat, Miguel flirtatiously croons, "I can't sleep/You can't sleep/Let's can't sleep together."

The appropriately named track is part of the 2013 Adult Swim Singles Program curated by the late-night cable channel. "Can't Sleep 2gether" is the penultimate release of the program, which has featured artists ranging from Dan Deacon to Lil B.

Miguel will perform at the iHeartRadio Festival before opening for Drake's "Would You Like a Tour?" shows in the fall.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
