Mac Miller: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

“There was a shift in Mac Miller’s boisterous demeanor as he started the third of his three-song Tiny Desk set. It’s the first time he’s performed tracks from his new album, Swimming, in front of an audience. On “2009,” he rubbed his chin with clinched eyes, looking like a young man who’s beginning to crack the code. Backed by a piano loop and a string quartet, he reflected on his journey’s peaks and valleys thus far. I ain’t asking why no more I know I’ll take it if it’s mine I don’t stay inside the lines It ain’t 2009 no more Yeah, I know what’s behind that door With nearly a decade under his belt at 26 years old, these words ring like an artist twice his age.”  NPRmusic
