The first posthumous record of Mac Miller‘s since his death last September has come to fruition. Entitled “Time,” the track combines a single verse from the late Miller, alongside support from Anderson .Paak touring band, Kali Uchis and .Paak’s notorious brainchild, Free Nationals. The track narrates the messy, circuitous nature of romantic partnerships.
The plucky, idealistic collaboration is set to appear of the Free Nationals’ forthcoming album, due later this year. The release arrives with further emotional poignancy given the ensemble’s household performance at Miller’s tribute concert last year following his untimely, industry-trembling death.
Mac Miller (born Malcolm McCormick) died last year, 2018, on September 7.

Flying Lotus made headlines last week after the release of “More,” a single from his new album featuring Anderson .Paak. The track, which has apparently been in the works for more than five years, now has an accompanying video that includes all the surrealism expected from a Flying Lotus video.
Directed by Shinichiro Watanabe of the anime “Cowboy Bebop,” the video hosts Anderson .Paak as a robot, doling out advice (in the form of soulful bars) to Flying Lotus’ pained space-man character, eventually turning him into a burning tree made of human organs. The second video from Flamagra, Flying Lotus’ forthcoming album due out May 24, this release only makes the 27-track, feature-heavy project more intriguing.
Flying Lotus will release his new 27-track album, Flamagra, later this month. The LP will be his first in almost five years, following 2014’s You’re Dead!. So far, we’ve heard “Fire Is Coming,” “Spontaneous,” “Takashi,” and, most recently, “More” featuring Anderson .Paak. Today, FlyLo shares the Shinichiro Watanabe-directed music … More »

Extremely happy old-school soul-singer and inveterate festival-wrecker Anderson .Paak just released the new album Ventura, his first in a few months. That means that Anderson .Paak has been in full-on charm-offensive media-blitz mode for about the past six months. You would think he would be exhausted! He is not! Instead, he staged his latest bit … More »
Pink has never fit in — so much so that not fitting in has become part of her personal brand. Despite spending two decades operating from deep within the mainstream machine, Alicia Beth Moore can believably tout herself as a pop star for the outsiders and the rebels. It’s a weird thing to say about … More »
