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.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
