“a deeply personal and ultimately heartbreaking collection of confessionals, filled with both profound beauty and resignation”
“‘Circles’ is a Fitting Coda to His Career”
“Mac Miller arrives at his purest, most compelling artistic statement”
Today, Mac Miller’s family is announcing a deluxe version of his sixth and final studio album Circles. The deluxe version features two new songs — “Right” and “Floating” — available exclusively on CD this Friday, March 6th, and coming to streaming services on March 20th with a vinyl edition of the deluxe album to follow on April 17th.
Circles was released digitally via Warner Records on January 17th and was the most pre-added album in Apple Music history. It also debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 Chart, marking Miller’s sixth consecutive Top 5 debut on the chart. Conceived as a sister album to 2018’s Grammy-nominated Swimming, the album was completed with the assistance of producer Jon Brion, with whom Miller worked on Swimming and had been working together on Circles at the time of his passing.
While sonically distinct from its predecessor, Circles fF upon its release — Miller further realizing his singing voice in addition to rapping, live instrumentation and earnest, confessional lyrical content. Listeners will hear shades of some of Circles’ influences in its songs, from the T-Rex guitar tone of “Surf” to the Plastic Ono Band-era John Lennon feel of its production and the inspired cover of Arthur Lee’s 1972 single “Everybody’s Gotta Live.”
