Last week, Mac Miller released “SWIMMING,” his introspective follow-up to 2016’s “The Divine Feminine.”
To mark the occasion, Miller visited the NPR offices for his own Tiny Desk Concert with a jazzy band, a guest appearance from Thundercat and some orchestrated musicians to bring the soulful and funky tracks from “SWIMMING” to life.
Miller performed ‘Small Worlds,’ ‘2009,’ and ‘What’s The Use?,’ the latter of which features Thundercat’s bass work in its studio version. Miller seems quite coy throughout the entire performance as he breaks down each song, adding to how seemingly personal the records are for him.
