Listen: Mac Miller Soulfully Croons on Posthumous Cover of 'Nothing From Nothing'

The posthumous cover is a part of his contribution to Spotify Singles series, which also includes a stripped-down version of 'Swimming' track 'Dunno'.

AceShowbiz - It's been months since Mac Miller tragically died of drug overdose, but his music and legacy carry on. For fans who have been missing to listen to the late rapper's voice, Spotify released two posthumous singles of him on Wednesday, November as part of the streaming service's Spotify Singles series. Both tracks were recorded live in New York City before his death.

The first song is a stripped-down version of "Dunno", a track from his latest album "Swimming". "Well, we was f***in', almost missed my flight/ I wasn't even trippin'," he half-hums over a gospel-styled piano sequence. "I said, it's all right/ Yeah, goddamn, we was hit last night/ Wouldn't you rather get along?" The stripped-down version of the song definitely showcases the nuances of his emotional writing more.

The other song is a soulful cover of Billy Preston's chart-topping 1874 hit "Nothing From Nothing". Even though the cover does not even last for two minutes, Miller still delivers an endearing vocal turn, giving off Paul McCartney's vibe whenever he does falsetto. "Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'/ You gotta have somethin' if you want to be with me," he sings in a throaty rasp.

The two singles are probably not going to be the only posthumous release that fans get to listen. Prior to this, a preview of his unreleased collaboration with Young Thug titled "Dollars" surfaced on the internet and caused social media frenzy. Miller's close friend and longtime manager, Quentin Cuff, said on Twitter that the "Donald Trump" rapper "was waiting to even hear these songs in full. He was so excited for these to come out."

It's currently unknown when the full version of the collaboration will be released.

Miller died at his Studio City home on September 7 due to drug overdose. His family recently held a tribute concert for the rapper with the likes of Chance the Rapper and Travis Scott (II) performing.
