NPR / Mac Miller / Eslah Attar

Following an interview with Rolling Stone, revealing a potential collaboration with Post Malone and delving into his recently released fifth album, Swimming, Mac Miller has also stopped by NPR‘s office and is the latest artist to perform on the publication’s Tiny Desk concert series.

In the 17-minute set above, Miller was joined by frequent collaborator Thundercat on the bass, who graced the Tiny Desk last year and will join Mac on tour later this fall, along with J.I.D.. The mini concert featured new songs from Swimming with “Small Worlds,” “What’s the Use?” and “2009,” as the live instrumentation offers a solid rendition compared from the recorded versions.

After enjoying the musical set, you can stream Swimming via Spotify below.
