London Pop Up:
Location: Protein Studios, Shoreditch, EC2A 3EY
Last week, Mac Miller’s family announced the release of his sixth and final studio album Circles and released new track and video “Good News,” a poignant six minute, abstract exploration of iconic themes and images through Miller’s career, directed by Eric Tilford and Anthony Gaddis. Circles will be released this Friday, January 17th, via Parlophone/Warner Records and is available for pre-order digitally and physically now. In conjunction with the album’s release, there will be four fan pop up exhibitions celebrating the music and legacy of Mac Miller in Los Angeles, New York, Pittsburgh & London. To celebrate the UK release of Circles, fans and media will have the opportunity to attend an exclusive pop up exhibition taking place at Protein Studios in Shoreditch. The exhibition will feature intimate, front-to-
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 features many of the hallmarks for which Swimming was critically-acclaimed 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.”
“Good News” can be streamed and Circles can be pre-ordered above now. Stay tuned for more Mac Miller and Circles news soon.
