The FADER Presents: ‘At Home with: Miguel’

Miguel-At-Home

Miguel loves quality things. “It’s been fun putting it together. I kind of found a new passion,” he tells The FADER about curating the look and feel of his Los Angeles home. For the latest installment of their “At Home With” — a series presented by Sonos and The FADER where they peek into artists’ homes to see where they live, listen and make music — they visited Miguel’s chill L.A. pad and in-home studio, where he gives viewers an inside look at his recording process, recounted a wild house party, and even introduced his cat Munchie.

“I start everything here [in my studio] with ideas, and actually a lot of songs I’ve finished in here. It’s set up so I’m self-sufficient, and that’s kind of how I like it,” said Miguel. “For me it’s like, the solitude of being in your own home and comfortability and the amount of vulnerability you’re able to accomplish – you can’t compare that to the way it feels to be in a really sterile studio. It’s just a really comfortable place and that’s how I wanted the house to be in general.”

Check out Miguel’s home and tour his favorite rooms, other than his bedroom, that include unique features like custom Jimi Hendrix, Marilyn Monroe and Salvador Dali wallpaper below:

2014 is a wrap and we’re simply astonished at how quickly the year has gone by! What’s even more astonishing though, is the music that hit our ears month after month, and like any other month, we’re here to give you our take on some of the best singles that dropped during the month of December.

Even though the holidays have a tendency to make people lazy, that sure wasn’t the case for the artists who chose to deliver material in the last month of 2014. From the captivating sounds of Jazmine Sullivan to the vocal fight for change from John Legend, December brought out some heavy hitters in the genre of R&B.

Without a doubt, we can confidently say that it’s been one hell of a year for music! While we’re a little sad to see 2014 go, we’re positive that 2015 will do just as much – if not more – for R&B and all of those involved in evolving, progressing and sustaining the genre.

In the meantime though, do one last reflection of the year with our “Top 15 Records of December” below!

R&B maverick Miguel is giving fans an early Christmas gift! After teasing us in October with a snippet of new song titled “Coffee,” the talented singer/songwriter has now released not only the aforementioned song, but two additional ones as well!

Having no official title, but perceived to be a new release in his Art Dealer Chic series , the free 3-song EP has us on a musical high! Kicking off the project with the song “NWA” – which features Los Angeles rapper Kurupt – the young star brings something smooth for the OG’s to enjoy. Following up with “HollywoodDreams,” Miguel takes us back to the sounds that was heard on his 2012 sophomore album, Kaleidoscope Dream. Closing out the project with the seductive “Coffee,” Miguel sings out, “I don’t wanna wake you / I just wanna watch you sleep,” and takes falling in love to whole another level.

Taking us on an exceptional romp in the sheets, all three of his new singles will have the ladies wanting a N.W.A. at the beginning and falling in love with the good guy by the end. Although short in numbers, the EP is a terrific introduction to Miguel’s next project, that will hopefully hit our ears very soon!
