Mac Miller’s First Posthumous Song to Be Released With The Free Nationals This Week
The first official Mac Miller release since his untimely passing in 2018 is set to arrive on Wednesday (June 12), Anderson .Paak announced this week.
In a post shared to Twitter on Monday (June 10), Anderson revealed the artwork for a single named "Time," with Mac and Anderson's band, The Free Nationals, on it as well as singer Kali Uchis. "6/12 be ready," Anderson wrote with a heart.
Anderson and Mac were close before Mac's passing and they even collaborated on tracks like The Divine Feminine cut, "Dang!" Upon Mac's passing, Anderson eulogized the rapper during the 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards and later performed at a benefit concert for Mac at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles that October.
Though this will be the first official release from Mac since his passing, there have been a few songs featuring the late rapper that have appeared online since then. Mac contributed a verse and hook on Seth Hirsch’s song “Say Goodbye,” which Seth released earlier this year before the song was promptly taken down because Miller's appearance wasn't authorized. Meanwhile, Madlib played an unreleased track from Miller that the pair had worked on before his passing. Thelonious Martin actually claimed that Mac had recorded a full album's worth of material with Madlib, so there is a large possibility that even more music will be coming from that.
