A message from the family of the late musician, Mac Miller, has announced the upcoming January 17th release of a new album titled Circles. The LP is a project he was working on leading up to his untimely death.

The release was completed by producer Jon Brion, who was a major contributor to the Grammy nominated, Swimming. Brion dedicated himself to the forthcoming album prior to Miller’s overdose and ramped up his focus in its aftermath.

Circles is a companion piece to Swimming and will be received with open arms by a fandom still reeling from the senseless tragedy. Posthumous releases are difficult endeavors to handle, however, this is poised to be another great addition to the artist’s legacy.

Below is the full statement from Mac Miller’s family.
