Legendary Mac Miller produced a discography that was something to be proud of. While he left us way too soon, we’re grateful for the time and tunes we’re gifted with.
Now, Mac Miller’s family are the ones gifting us. Announcing a double-disc vinyl box set of his albums Swimming and Circles. Coined Swimming In Circles the box set collects Miller’s final two studio albums, conceived by the late artist as companion albums, into one perfected presentation and will be available December 18th through Warner Records.
Along with the release of Swimming In Circles, his estate also presented us fans with never before seen studio footage of the Swimming In Circles session, which can be viewed here:
Mac Miller – The Making of Swimming & Circles
A showcase of the bright, brilliant, beautiful human being that Mac Miller was, the footage is full of laughter, lyrical genius, and embodies him fully.
Circles was released in January this year and was the most pre-added album in Apple Music history upon release. Debuting at #3 on the Billboard 200 Chart, made this Miller’s sixth consecutive Top 5 debut on the chart. The album is also up for consideration in various categories for the 2020 GRAMMY’s, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and song of the year. These nominations follow 2019 for Best Rap Album for Swimming, a perfect companion to the flawless full-length Circles.
With this box set, fans will be able to listen to the two releases on vinyl, side by side for the first time. Allowing us to experience the full narrative, an arc of expression, across the two albums.
While his time on this earth was short, it is no news that he was a special, one of a kind soul. Comparable to a strike of lightning, his life was quick, flashing before our eyes. But beautiful, large and impactful, lighting up our entire sky.
Rest In Peace Malcolm James McCormick
