Featuring New Track 100 Grandkids
Following a 2014 that saw the release of his critically acclaimed Faces mixtape and announcement that he had partnered his REMember label with Warner Bros for future releases, Mac Miller is back will release his new album GO:OD AM on September 18, 2015. The album is available to pre-order now.
GO:OD AM features 100 Grandkids, which is available for download immediately upon pre-ordering the album. Watch the Nick Walker-directed video here.
Mac Miller has accomplished every goal he ever set for himself. At least that’s what the magazines say about the Pittsburg kid, and they’re right enough. With his first album he became a grassroots rap megastar. With his second he bared his weird soul and was praised for it. His 11 mixtapes boast a couple bucket lists’ worth of collaborators, from Bun B and Kendrick Lamar to Rick Ross and Juicy J. And in the same year that he toured the U.S. backed by a psychedelic soul band, he rapped all over Europe with Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz. He did indie. He’s doing major. He even bought himself a ridiculous house in the Los Angeles hills and made a TV show about it. Hell, he made a jazz record.
As Mac’s profile rose, his outlook sunk. While the picture he painted of himself through 2014’s bleak-banging Faces tape is real as can be, it caught him in a surreal state: questioning everything, depressed. In 2015, at 23, we meet Mac all over again. The Mac who’s got some answers, who sold the mansion, climbed out of the rabbit hole, and went back home to make his most confident and clear-headed album yet.
Mac’s third proper album, finds him reuniting with his Pittsburg production crew – I.D. Labs – for a raw and soulful set of new songs.
As you learn more about the just-completed album, you too will discover things: A title that speaks to this moment in Mac’s life. A well-curated set of guests who embolden the message. Echoes of past forays into piano music and crate-digger beats. Fresh collisions of astral soundscapes and trap drums. You’ll find a lot of humour and a lot of swagger. Heart and insight, too. Most of all, you’ll find Mac Miller standing on his mountain of accomplishments – those we witnessed.
