Circles. January 17.

This was a shock to Mac fans everywhere because "Swimming" was released a month before his death Sept. 7, 2018. "Swimming" was full of so many feels and good vibes so here's hoping that "Circles" can measure up to the genius final release that Mac gave us.

In the Instagram post, Mac's family writes that this new album is a companion album to "Swimming," meaning that they are completely different albums with different meanings, but they go together to "complement" each other.

"Two different styles complementing each other, completing a circle -- Swimming in Circles was the concept."

While he was deep into his recording process for "Circles," he unfortunately was never able to finish it due to his heartbreaking, untimely death. While recording, Mac involved singer Jon Brion to help him work on the album.

After Mac's death, Jon Brion decided to make it a priority to finish Mac's work. Brion's involvement in the album allowed him enough insight into Mac's creativity to finish it in honor of him.

The family went on in the Instagram post to say that it was extremely important to Mac for the world to be able to experience this new album and they had a difficult way deciding how to release it to the world while keeping Mac's creativity and work "sacred" to what he was in the process of creating.

This was the only post on Mac's Instagram so we don't know much about the album or how much of Mac Miller we get to hear, but we know that they are proud of what is being released and grateful to Jon Brion for taking the initiative and hard decision to finish the album for Mac.

Despite COVID-19, Alabamans Return To Beaches

Noncompliance with CDC recommendations on beaches may contribute to outbreaks in Republican-controlled states.

Last week, I was in Orange Beach, AL. It, along with other Alabama beaches, seems to be quickly becoming a hotspot for coronavirus (COVID-19) cases, yet one could not discern this by observing the behavior of beachgoers. The situation on the ground was absolutely bonkers, and no one seemed to even be aware of the ongoing pandemic. Several restaurants that my family and I frequently visit on our annual trips to the beach had closed their doors this year due to an employee or employees contracting the virus. But at the ones that remained open, people neither wore masks nor maintained social distance.
