Loc­a­tion: Pro­tein Stu­di­os, Shored­itch, EC2A 3EY
Date: 16/01/2020
Time: 14:00–20:00

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-back listen­ings of the record as well as fan art and exclus­ive new Circles merch offer­ings. Listen­ings will be con­duc­ted on a first come, first served basis.

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.
