Circles, Mac Miller’s sixth and last studio album, has arrived.
The 12-track record features the previously released song, “Good News,” as well as a cover of Arthur Lee’s 1972 song, “Everybody’s Gotta Live,” which has been retitled as simply “Everybody.” Producer Jon Brion, who also collaborated with Miller on 2018’s Swimming, worked closely with the rapper while he was recording Circles, and was instrumental to its completion.
The record was originally conceived by the late rapper as a companion to Swimming. Miller was “well into the process of recording” the new album before his untimely death in the same year, his family wrote in a statement on Instagram.
“After his passing, [producer] Jon [Brion] dedicated himself to finishing Circles based on his time and conversations with Malcolm,” Miller’s family added. “We simply know that it was important to Malcolm for the world to hear it.”
Miller died in September 2018 from an accidental drug overdose, just a month after the release of Swimming. His vocals were previously included on the song “Time,” by the Free Nationals, with authorization from his family.
