Mac Miller’s family reveals that the rapper’s final recordings will be out January 17. The forthcoming record is meant to compliment his previous body of work, Swimming, which came out just a month before he died, — thus completing his full, intended concept, Swimming in Circles.
Mac was in the midst of recording an album before his death of an accidental overdose in 2018. According to the family, producer Jon Brion took it upon himself to finish Circle following the rapper’s tragic death. After hearing some early demos, he got to work fine-tuning them for the companion album. His contributions are based on the time he spent and conversations he had with Mac.
The family opens up in the statement:
"Here we are. The act of having to write this at all feels surreal. At the time of his passing, Malcolm was well into the process of recording his companion album to 'Swimming,' entitled 'Circles,'"
"This is a complicated process that has no right answer. No clear path. We simply know that it was important to Malcolm for the world to hear it," their statement continued.
