Mac Miller Teases New Single "What's the Use?" With Thundercat, Dâm-Funk, Syd & Snoop Dogg

The record will premiere this coming Monday on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 program.

If fans weren't already excited about Mac Miller's forthcoming album, Swimming, the Pittsburgh MC is set to give them an additional reason this coming Monday, July 23, when he premieres his next single on Zane Lowe's World Record on Beats 1 on Apple Music.

Per Miller, "What's the Use?" the follow-up to last week's Best New Song selection, "Self Care," features production by Pomo and Dâm-Funk, baseline by Thundercat, and background vocals by Syd (of The Internet) and Snoop Dogg.

"The stuff Snoop sent me was so amazing," Miller said to Lowe in a video clip released in advance of the full premiere. "He talks like a bunch of shit at the end that I didn't end up keeping but I have to listen to... Sometimes I don't know what I want so I'm just like, 'Snoop, just talk a bunch of shit,' and he’s like, 'Alright.'"
