Mac Miller is back to announce his highly-anticipated new album, SWIMMING to be released 3rd August.
SWIMMING is the Pittsburgh-born rapper’s first release since 2016’s THE DIVINE FEMININE which featured the hit single ‘Dang!’ with guest vocalist Anderson .Paak. Miller’s 2015 album GO:OD AM featured guest collaborators such as Tyler The Creator and Miguel, and hit platinum in New Zealand.
SWIMMING includes the previously-released track ‘Small Worlds’ as well as new song ‘Self Care,’ for which he is sharing a new Christian Weber-directed video.
Born Malcolm McCormick, Mac Miller made his name through mixtapes and video-sharing websites. His K.I.D.S. mixtape became his breakthrough when it was released in 2010, earning attention from hip-hop blogs and landing Miller a recording contract. Miller released his debut EP, ON AND ON AND BEYOND, followed by his Billboard chart-topping debut album BLUE SIDE PARK in 2011. His experimental sophomore album, WATCHING MOVIES WITH THE SOUND OFF, followed in 2013. That album showcased then-emerging artists like Action Bronson, Earl Sweatshirt, and Flying Lotus and earned Miller widespread critical acclaim.
