How can I listen to Mac Miller’s Faces mixtape?

Miller’s estate announced on September 15, 2021 that the mixtape in full would be available on streaming platforms and vinyl for the first time on October 15, 2021.

A video for the song Colors and Shapes, directed by Sam Manson, was also released onto Miller’s YouTube channel.

The re-release edition features a bonus track Yeah.

When was Faces album originally released?

Miller’s album Faces was independently released on May 11, 2014 after his contract with Rostrum Records had expired in January that year.

The album was his eleventh solo mixtape and originally contained 24 tracks.

It was the follow-up to his second studio album Watching Movies with the Sound Off in 2013.

The album contains spoken word and movie samples throughout, including poet Charles Bukowski on Wedding, author Hunter S Thompson at the start of Funeral and actor Bill Murray from his film Meatballs.

The use of these samples was thought to be the reason why the album wasn’t originally released on streaming services at the time.

Many critics consider it his finest work with many of his lyrics exploring his struggle with drug addiction.

Rolling Stone voted Faces the 18th best rap album of 2014.
