A month ago Mac Miller announced that his official return to the mainstream of music- revealing he was readying his fifth studio album. In promotion of the project, Mac Miller released a few singles, freestyle, and did a few radio interviews. Today the Pittsburgh natives roll out his new project.
The Pittsburgh rapper goes at it solo on the 13 tracks, which include the previously released “What’s the Use?,” “Self Care,” and “Small Worlds.”
Unlike his past albums, Mac didn’t put pressure on himself. “This time it took me a while to figure out what I wanted to say, what kind of music I wanted to make, and it was just a lot of experimenting,” he told Zane Lowe on Beats 1. “So we finally landed on some type of a path and I took my time.”
Next up, Mac will hit the road on “The Swimming Tour” with special guests Thundercat and J.I.D. The 26-date North American trek kicks off Oct. 27 in San Francisco and wraps Dec. 10 in Vancouver.
