Mac Miller’s Spotify Singles have been released posthumously today (Nov. 28), almost three months after his death in September at the age of 26.
Miller performed “Dunno,” a track from his August release Swimming, and a cover of Billy Preston’s 1974 track “Nothing From Nothing.” Both tracks were accompanied by piano, showing a more softhearted side to the Pittsburgh rapper/producer. The version of “Dunno,” already one of Miller’s more scaled-back tracks, more seriously emphasizes the almost heartbreaking vulnerability found in the original, while the upbeat Preston track gets a jazzy makeover, still following the original feel of the track but better fitting Miller’s rasp.

Miller died on Sept. 7 of an overdose due to “mixed drug toxicity.” His death came just weeks after the release of Swimming and just months before the start of his tour in support of the album.
Since his death, fans and musicians alike have been mourning the loss, from songs in his memory to the all-star tribute concert held in late October. More recently, in addition to this posthumous release, fans have discovered a secret comedic Instagram account, @cloudywithachanceofawesome69, on which Miller posted videos of himself, playing the character “Lars”—a man set on inspiring the world through his “vape tricks.”
