Although Mac Miller started working on Circles soon after Swimming, his tragic, untimely passing in September of 2018 didn't allow the beloved rapper to see the project through. Jon Brion completed production for the record "based on his time and conversations" with Mac, and what comes forth is a companion piece to the critically acclaimed Swimming. "Two different styles complementing each other, completing a circle—Swimming in Circles was the concept," notes Mac's family, with the soulful "Good News" being a good indication of the direction of the LP. On the track, Miller reflects on similar themes he discussed on Swimming: "I Spend the whole day in my head / do a little spring cleanin' / I'm always too busy dreamin'." It's been reported that the rapper has a huge catalog of unreleased music, and Miller's family has been, rightfully so, very careful and protective of deciding what sees the light of day. With that said, there is no doubt that Circles, the rapper's 6th studio effort, will help keep his memory alive.
