Mac Miller’s Estate Announces His Upcoming ‘Swimming In Circles’ Box Set

Before he passed away in 2018, Mac Miller planned to release his albums Swimming and Circles as companion pieces in a trilogy. However, he died during the creation of Circles, which was finished by his production partner Jon Brion. That won’t stop his estate from combining the two finished albums into a collection for Mac’s fans, fulfilling his wishes as best they can.

The Swimming In Circles box set, which Miller’s estate announced today, will include a double-disc set, a booklet featuring photos from the making of the albums, a poster, and a “six-panel lyric scroll.” The estate also shared a behind-the-scenes video from the recording sessions in Hawaii, where he told Vulture‘s Craig Jenkins he recorded “Hurt Feelings” and “Wings” from Swimming, which released just a month before Miller’s death in 2018 and for which he was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Album.

Earlier this year, Miller’s family also released a deluxe version of Circles. Whether this was the unnamed project his estate asked fans to contribute to in July remains to be seen.

Swimming In Circles is due 12/18 through Warner Records. You can pre-order it here.
