After releasing three new singles—“Buttons,” “Programs,” and “Small Worlds”—at the end of May, Mac Miller has officially announced the release of his fifth studio album SWIMMING, out August 3. 

The announcement came in the form of a minimalist tweet, with a 30-second album trailer doubling as a snippet of what could be the fourth single.

With the album trailer following the same aesthetic as the artwork for the previous singles, we can assume that all preceding records have a chance to appear on the final album. Sonically, the singles and album trailer range from Faces-era haze to the sweeter and smooth jazz-leaning of his fourth LP, The Divine Feminine.

SWIMMING will be the follow-up to 2016’s The Divine Feminine and will be the first album Miller releases since his longest break from dropping music in seven years. Up until 2017, Miller had put out an album, beat tape, or mixtape every year since 2010.
