Anthony Green talks “extremely lonely” addiction amid Mac Miller release
In November of 2019, Green announced that he had relapsed back into addiction and was “trying to take time to pull (himself) back together.” Mac Miller, unfortunately, passed in September of 2018 due to an accidental drug overdose. A posthumous album arrived today, titled Circles.
In a very brief and vulnerable moment of Twitter, Anthony Green praises Mac Miller's album Circles and discusses his thoughts on addiction.New Mac Miller is incredible but also very very sad. Addiction is an awful thing to go through and extremely lonely. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
Anthony Green has always been very open and honest about his struggles with the disease of addiction. As stated above, back Nov. 2019, he took to Twitter to announce his relapse.I recently relapsed and am trying to take time to pull myself back together. this is the hardest thing I and my family have ever experienced. I look forward to getting healthy and hopefully being able to share in making music with and for you again. See you in the spring.
The album Green is talking about is Mac Miller's posthumous record Circles.
According to the post announcing the album, this was supposed to be a companion piece to his last album Swimming. The albums were distinct yet complementary in their sound and meant to work together with the concept essentially being “Swimming In Circles”.
Miller was working with Jon Brion prior to his tragic passing. Afterward, Brion continued working on production for the album based on discussions they had while writing.
“After his passing, Jon dedicated himself to finishing Circles based on his time and conversations with Malcolm,” Miller’s family wrote. “We are so grateful to Jon and to those who gave their best to the difficult and emotional task of putting out this body of work.”
Of course, Green and Mac Miller aren't the only musicians that struggle with addiction. Others, such as Demi Lovato and Motley Crüe's Nikki Sixx have also been open about their struggles with the disease.
