Mac Miller’s First Posthumous Album ‘Circles’ Is Finally Here
Friday, January 17, 2020
Mac Miller‘s first posthumous album, Circles, is finally available to stream.
The 12-track album dropped earlier today, January 17, alongside a new video for the song “Hand Me Down.” Find both below.
Last week, 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 ‘Circles’ Tracklist
Circles features many of the hallmarks for which Swimming was critically-acclaimed upon its release, such as Miller further realizing his singing voice in addition to rapping, live instrumentation, and earnest, confessional lyrics. In its songs, listeners can expect to hear influences as diverse as the T-Rex guitar tone of “Surf” and the Plastic Ono Band-era John Lennon feel of its production to the inspired cover of Arthur Lee’s 1972 single “Everybody’s Gotta Live.”
