Wildheart, the fantastic third album from Miguel, is a playful-yet-wise mix of pop, funk, rock and soul that goes way beyond the scope of just R&B. One of its highlights, “Waves,” perhaps showcases this versatility best. It’s no surprise, then, that the Grammy-nominated crooner chose to play around with the song even more with a fantastic collection of diverse remixes – released as the Rogue Waves EP.
Included on the remix EP are a pretty wide variety of diverse artists like Tame Impala, RAC, Travis Scott, Joshua Tree, and country singer Kacey Musgraves. They’re all various levels of fantastic, but the Kacey remix specifically, is quite possibly the most left-field of the bunch.
It’s also easily my favorite next to Tame Impala‘s reworking as we get to hear Kacey laying down her twangy vocals on-top of a smooth-gliding groove and layered synths — a obvious departure from her signature, throwback country-western style. Kacey totally makes it work, though, making this a total WIN for both. A performance needs to happen soon!
