«Colors and Shapes» – Mac Miller

Mac Miller’s 2014 mixtape “Faces” will come to streaming services and get released on vinyl next month. Ahead of the re-release, there is a new music video for «Colors and Shapes». It’s directed by Sam Mason:

The track felt very visual to me — like it had its own world. This atmospheric nighttime place that was sometimes dangerous, sometimes comforting, then I saw a picture of Mac Miller’s dog Ralph and a story emerged. To build it out I asked Malcolm’s family to send me bits and pieces from his childhood, scenes from the town where he grew up, objects, toys from his room — little pieces of his life that I extrapolated outwards and used to inspire the story. In the abstract, it’s meant to be a video about childhood—growing up as an artist and the highs and lows of that experience. It’s sort of a look at the emotional and difficult and perilous but noble path of an artist.
