Rostrum Records held a listening party last night (October 27) for Mac Miller’s debut album Blue Slide Park at the infamous Quad Studios in Manhattan. The album, which is set for release on November 8, is one of 2011’s more anticipated releases following the success Mac has had over the past year as an independent artist.
Amidst a crowd of writers, bloggers, a number of industry people, and even producer Statik Selektah, Mac’s cool, calm, and collected demeanor helped ease any concerns some might have with the project, and if he has changed up his the recipe that has worked so well for him because of his debut.
Before the play button was hit on Blue Slide Park, Mac briefly addressed the crowd, saying: “I like the album, I hope y’all like the album. I don’t really want to say too much about it. I’m just going to let it play. I just want to ask for you to turn it up loud, ’cause I like to listen to it loud, and enjoy Blue Slide Park.”
From what we heard at the session, fans are in for a treat come November 8 when Blue Slide Park hits stores. In the meantime, check out the music video below for Mac’s new single, “Party on 5th Ave,” which dropped just last night:
