As Mac Miller’s ‘Swimming’ turns five, NPR releases Tiny Desk Concert performance pressed on vinyl.
To commemorate the 5-year anniversary of Mac Miller’s iconic album, ‘Swimming’, his estate, 92 till Infinity, has announced they have teamed up with NPR Music to release two new vinyls; a special edition Swimming vinyl and a Tiny Desk Concert vinyl, which plays the iconic performance Mac put on as a part of NPR’s Tiny Desk series.
The Tiny Desk Concert vinyl retailed for $28USD on the official website and consists of the 3 songs Miller played at NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series; “Small Worlds”, “What’s The Use?” – in which he was joined by Thundercat on the bass – and “2009”.
The 2018 performance has been considered widely the best and most memorable NPR Tiny Desk Concert put on to date. Coinciding with the Swimming theme, the NPR record is a translucent blue with the message “Love Always” etched in silver.
The Swimming special edition record, retailing for $80 USD, comes complete with 2 pink and blue marbled vinyl, 8 lyric cards and a poster.
Alongside the vinyl releases, Mac Miller’s ‘Swimming’ is being celebrated through dropping new merch on his website such as tees, hoodies, hats, and other Swimming-themed merch.

Vans has also released a pair of limited-edition shoes, donning the Swimming logo. The earnings of the shoes will partially go towards the Mac Miller fund, a foundation that is dedicated to supporting young musicians through resources.
Continuing the celebration of Mac Miller and Swimming, the album was played in its entirety yesterday in various Pittsburg and Los Angeles cinemas, complete with never before seen visuals, creating a fully immersive experience.
The opportunity was available via RSVP and, due to the overwhelming demand that met with it, 92 till Infinity announced they had added a second screening.
