There could be more unheard music from Mac Miller on the way. 🙏
On the heels of historic posthumous releases from Pop Smoke and Juice WRLD, who joined Drake and The Beatles as the only acts ever to chart five songs in the top 10 of the Hot 100, Mac Miller's team appears to be prepping a new project of some sort.
In a tweet, Warner Records announced that Mac's team is "working on an untitled project to celebrate Malcolm and his music."
They've also set up a toll-free number for fans to share their "stories, thoughts, and wishes," which could be featured in the upcoming offering. Macheads can access the number by visiting this website.
Mac's only posthumous release since his passing in Sept. 2018 came this past January. Circles, a 12-song collection that explores patience and humility at its best and worst, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. The album was finished by executive producer Jon Brion and was meant to exist hand in hand with his 2018 album, Swimming.
"There were supposed to be three albums: the first, 'Swimming,' was sort of the hybridization of going between hip-hop and song form," Brion told The New York Times. "The second, which he’d already decided would be called 'Circles,' would be song-based. And I believe the third one would have been just a pure hip-hop record. I think he wanted to tell people, 'I still love this, I still do this.'"
It's unclear if this latest endeavor will be music-focused, but in an interview with Genius, Mac's longtime producer and engineer E. Dan claimed that the late Pittsburgh artist has "a lot of great stuff that’s already finished." He's hopeful the songs will be unearthed, though he admitted, "I have no beat on [posthumous plans] whatsoever."
As another celebration of Mac's legacy, his breakout mixtape, KIDS, was uploaded to streaming services in April nearly a decade after it first hit the internet.
