The countdown is on until Mac Miller drops his sophomore album, Watching Movies With the Sound Off, featuring his latest single “Watching Movies.”
Mac released the new track on Thursday night after teasing fans for a few hours, eventually telling them on Twitter, “just something to play very loud.” Over the trippy beat, produced by Sap and Larry Fisherman, the Pittsburgh rapper spits about his wonderful lifestyle, which is apparently so interesting that he declares, “looking at my life is like you watching movies.”
A couple of hours after the single dropped, Mac was pleased to point out that fans were having some very heated and unexpected debates about what they were listening to, writing, “There’s a huge religion argument going on in the YouTube comments for #WatchingMovies perfect.”
When Mac dropped by the MTV News studios recently, we asked him to watch a few movies, including “The Notebook,” and narrate them with the sound off. The result was pure comedy.
The first single from Watching Movies With the Sound Off was “S.D.S. (Somebody Do Something),” which was accompanied by an off-the-wall music video in which Mac played a superhero, taking on his nemesis Red Dot, played by former child star Corey Feldman.
When the album finally drops, fans can catch Mac Miller on his 38-city Space Migration Tour , which kicks off June 25 in Austin, Texas, and wraps up August 10 in San Diego. Guests on the tour will include Meek Mill, Chance the Rapper and Vince Staples.
