Spotify has released a couple of new tunes from the late rapper Mac Miller.
A recording of his song Dunno and a cover of Billy Preston’s 1974 hit Nothing From Nothing are part of a Spotify Singles playlist that came out on the streaming platform. They were recorded live in New York City before Miller’s death on September 7.
Miller appears to get emotional about an ex-girlfriend — perhaps Ariana Grande? — in the wistful Dunno, from his 2018 album Swimming. And he puts a smoky, introspective spin on Nothing From Nothing.
Miller, who was 26, died from an accidental overdose of alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office concluded.
The unexpected nature of his death left many strings untied, including a Halloween concert date at the Greek Theatre that became the peer-loaded tribute concert Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life.
