Mac Miller's 'Faces' Treated to Vinyl and Digital Release
Watch a new video for the mixtape's "Colors and Shapes"
Published Sep 15, 2021Mac Miller's 2014 mixtape Faces will be given its first-ever digital and vinyl releases this year.
Today, it was announced that Miller's cult favourite tape, initially delivered May 11, 2014, will be available on all streaming services on October 15 for the first time since its release.
Alongside today's news, a video for "Colors and Shapes" can be found below. Director Sam Mason shared the following of the visuals:
The track felt very visual to me—like it had its own world. This atmospheric nighttime place that was sometimes dangerous, sometimes comforting, then I saw a picture of Ralph and a story emerged. To build it out I asked Malcolm's family to send me bits and pieces from his childhood, scenes from the town where he grew up, objects, toys from his room—little pieces of his life that I extrapolated outwards and used to inspire the story. In the abstract, it's meant to be a video about childhood—growing up as an artist and the highs and lows of that experience. It's sort of a look at the emotional and difficult and perilous but noble path of an artist.
The 25-track Faces features collaborations with Earl Sweatshirt, ScHoolboy Q, Rick Ross, Vince Staples and more. Further pre-order details for both digital and vinyl editions can be found here.
