It’s been a rather tumultuous few months for one Malcolm McCormick, and he’s barely into the second half of his twenties.
Following his fourth album The Divine Feminine (which may or may not have been inspired by his then-partner Ariana Grande), Mac Miller an Ariana would split up—only for Ariana to find, fall for, and become engaged to comedian Pete Davidson literally a month later—while Mac would go on to be arrested and charged with driving under the influence and hit and run after crashing his whip into a power pole and fleeing the scene
So needless to say, there’s a substantial amount of attention on Mac’s fifth album, Swimming. Judging by the singles “Self Care,” an “Inertia” freestyle and “What’s the Use?,” the album may be one of his most personal works yet. Coming in at 13 tracks, the likes of Thundercat, Syd, Snoop Dogg and others, Swimming can be heard in its entirety below.
