According to reports, Miller’s follow-up to 2015’s GO:OD AM is slated to arrive September 16 with contributions from a slew of hip-hop artists like K. Dot.
He’s also shared the first single from the record, “Dang!,” which features Anderson .Paak. It premiered today on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. Speaking with Lowe, Mac revealed that The Divine Feminine has contributions from Kendrick Lamar, Cee-Lo, and Robert Glasper. (Mac’s song with Kendrick will be their second collaboration, following the 2012 Macadelic track “Fight the Feeling.”) (Pitchfork)
Last September, Miller’s GO:OD AM made a Top 5 debut on the sales chart.
Drake & Future’s collaborative mixtape, What a Time to Be Alive (YMCMB/Republic/Epic), has topped the HITS Album Sales Chart with 340k and the Sales Plus Streaming (SPS) Chart with 379k. Meanwhile, Lana Del Rey’s highly anticipated Honeymoon (Interscope) debuted at #2 with 111k in sales and 121k at SPS. Warner Bros.’ Mac Miller follows at #3 with 78k for GO:OD AM and Columbia’s David Gilmour debuts at #4 with 68k for Rattle That Lock, while WMG’s Shinedown rounds out the Top 5 with 61k for Threat to Survival.

In July 2015, Miller broke big news about the album’s completion.
In 2014, Miller talked about leaving the independent hustle to sign a deal with Warner Bros. Records.
“I’m trying to not let [the deal] factor in. I’ve held on and been independent and done my own thing long enough that they trust me and are going to let me make what I want to make. I think that the second I let that affect the creation, it’s horrible.” (The FADER)
