Mac Miller‘s first posthumous album, Circles, is finally available to stream. The 12-track album dropped on January 17, alongside new videos for every track on the project.
A few weeks ago, Miller’s family took to social media to announce the project, which was originally intended to be a companion album to Miller’s 2018 LP, Swimming. Instead, it became the final release during the artist’s lifetime as he passed away just one month later on September 7.
The Instagram post from Miller’s family revealed that he was working on Circles at the time of his passing. Following the Pittsburgh-born musician’s death, producer Jon Brion committed himself to finishing the album based on his time and conversations with Miller.
Mac Miller Mural in Pittsburgh
On January 17, a Mac Miller mural popped up in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The black-and-white mural, depicting the late rapper, was spray-painted by local artist Jeremy Raymer. It can be found at the corner of James and East Ohio Street in Deutschtown, just a few blocks away from where the Pittsburgh listening session took place.

Circles features many of the hallmarks for which Swimming was critically-acclaimed, such as Miller further realizing his singing voice in addition to rapping, live instrumentation, and earnest, confessional lyrics.
To coincide with the album release, Miller’s family also unveiled music videos for every single track, following the release of “Good News.” The videos were made using nostalgic footage of the late rapper, YouTube comments from fans, and dreamy animations.
