The late Mac Miller’s new Circles album has finally dropped today, about a year-and-a-half after his passing. This new album acts as a companion to Miller’s 2018 release Swimming, and is a record that he worked on with producer Jon Brion. Its made out of 12 tracks in total with no features.
“Throughout all of his lyrics, his self-reflection is much more interesting than some other people’s,” Brion said. “‘Circles’ and a few other songs on this record: You hear him acknowledging aspects of himself, either that he doesn’t feel capable of changing or things he thinks are questionable. Things you’ll hear in the lyrics directly—‘I’m this way, and I think other people might not understand how I think, but actually I’m okay with that.’ It’s so pointed. I was just a hundred percent in from the get-go.”
