The estate of Mac Miller recently announced a new project containing the late rapper’s previously unreleased music. According to the statement released by his family, Miller’s first posthumous album, titled Circles, will be released on January 17th.
Miller’s estate first approved the release of his unheard music back in June, when singles “Time” with Free Nationals and Kali Uchis, and “That’s Life” with 88-Keys and Sia were made available to the public. However, Circles will be the first full release with Miller’s music since his death in September 2018.
According to the statement, Mac Miller began work on Circles before his death, collaborating with producer Jon Brion. After Miller passed away, Brion “dedicated himself to finishing “Circles” based on his time and conversations with Malcolm.”
Miller’s most recent studio album, Swimming, was released in August 2018. The record, which was produced by the late rapper himself, earned positive reviews and peaked at No. 3 on US Billboard 200. It was also nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.
