Mac Miller's family releases posthumous single 'Good News'

WATCH: The official music video for the late Mac Miller's 'Good News'

Only two days after announcing the posthumous Mac Miller album Circles, the family of the late rapper has put out its first single, Good News.

The sombre track was revealed on Instagram on Friday and accompanied by a colourfully animated music video directed by Anthony Gaddis and Eric Tilford.

Previously unseen clips and photographs of Miller are scattered throughout the vivid, emotional video as it appears to follow his journey through life.

Much like the rest of the upcoming album, which drops next Friday, Good News was produced by Jon Brion.

The 56-year-old producer was a collaborator of Miller’s and co-wrote a majority of the tracks from his previous album, Swimming (2018).

Though Good News is only the first taste of the upcoming Circles record, it’s Miller’s third posthumous release overall.
