On Octo­ber 15thMac Miller’s cult favor­ite mix­tape ‘Faces’ will be avail­able on all stream­ing ser­vices for the first time since its ini­tial release. The pro­ject, which ori­gin­ally deb­uted on Mother­’s Day 2014, is a vital release in Mac’s cata­log that fol­lowed-up his crit­ic­ally- acclaimed sopho­more album ‘Watch­ing Movies With The Sound Off’. Upon its arrival, the mix­tape served as the high water mark for Mac’s tech­nic­al prowess and cemen­ted a cre­at­ive actu­al­iz­a­tion that would con­tin­ue through his career; rein­vent­ing him­self with each new pro­ject. Review­ing the pro­ject fol­low­ing its release, crit­ic Craig Jen­kins suc­cinctly described it as “the best work of his career.”

In addi­tion to being made avail­able on stream­ing ser­vices, ‘Faces’ will be avail­able on vinyl for the first time on Octo­ber 15th. Vinyl can be pre-ordered now HERE.

The announce­ment of the mixtape’s release on stream­ing ser­vices next month arrives along­side a new music video for Faces high­light “Col­ors and Shapes.” Its dir­ect­or Sam Mason speaks on the work:
“The track felt very visu­al to me—like it had its own world. This atmo­spher­ic night­time place that was some­times dan­ger­ous, some­times com­fort­ing, then I saw a pic­ture of Ral­ph and a story emerged. To build it out I asked Malcolm’s fam­ily to send me bits and pieces from his child­hood, scenes from the town where he grew up, objects, toys from his room—little pieces of his life that I extra­pol­ated out­wards and used to inspire the story. In the abstract, it’s meant to be a video about childhood—growing up as an artist and the highs and lows of that exper­i­ence. It’s sort of a look at the emo­tion­al and dif­fi­cult and per­il­ous but noble path of an artist.”

Stay tuned for more Mac Miller and ‘Faces’ news soon.
