Miguel has revealed he is working with Jessie Ware on his third album, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The R&B singer has begun work on the follow-up to 2012's 'Kaleidoscope Dream' and told the publication he had spent the past fortnight in LA working with Ware on a song for the record. He also revealed J Cole was involved with the new album, after he had discovered the rapper was in the same studio.

"It was a little daunting because I wasn't sure how rusty I'd be," Miguel said about starting work on his third album. "I'd been collecting ideas and writing down concepts and phrases and all those things you hoard as you're moving along, and that very first day in the first hour, we had something special. I think my spirit was ready to go and ride the wave, so to speak. I've been so focused on performing and making sure that what we do live is connecting. So now I'm just happy to be in a place where I can have solitude and just create freely."

Speaking about the success he achieved with his second album 'Kaleidoscope Dream' and the Grammy-winning single 'Adorn', he continued: "In retrospect, there were so many great songs that could have or should have been on radio that we never really got to do. I think everyone was so stunned that 'Adorn' was so [successful] and it just kept going. We did what we were supposed to do with Kaleidoscope Dream, but I feel like it never got all the attention it should have from the variables that can help broadcast your art to the world. This time around, it's about going back in and creating music that I love and creating that plan so that if things do happen, we have a right idea. There's a range – it's not just about a song."

Miguel is nominated for two Grammys at this year's award ceremony - Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for 'Power Trip', an earlier collaboration with J Cole, and Best R&B Performance for 'How Many Drinks?'
