Mac Miller‘s family announced a new album from the late rapper will be released on Jan. 17.
The forthcoming album, “Circles,” is a companion project to Miller’s 2018 album “Swimming.” Miller had been collaborating on the album with record producer Jon Brion, who continued work after the artist’s death, according to a statement released by the family on social media.
“This is a complicated process that has no right answer,” the family wrote. “We simply know that it was important to Malcolm for the world to hear it.”
Miller’s estate began approving posthumous music releases in June 2019, with the singles “Time” with Free Nationals and Kali Uchis, and “That’s Life” with 88-Keys and Sia.
“We hope you take the time to listen,” Miller’s family wrote. “The look on his face when everyone was listening said it all.”
