The late, great Mac Miller appears on a new solo track by Grammy Award-winning producer 88-Keys. “That’s Life,” which also features vocals from Sia.

This is the first song from 88 in eight years as a solo artist and one of the last pieces of music to come from the late Mac Miller with the blessing of his family. “That’s Life” was originally recorded in New York City while 88 and Mac Miller were in the studio together.

“‘That’s Life’ is a song which sums up the sentiments of the music I’ve been working on over the past few years,” 88-Keys shared. “We all have to forge through the good, the bad and the ugly. Mac came up with the concept for the song stemming from a conversation we had in the studio about relationships as we shared with each other what made the ones we were in at the time special. I played the song for Sia and she personally identified with the sentiments of the song and felt strongly about contributing her own thoughts on the subject matter. At the end of it all, my dear friend Mac and my new-found friend Sia helped me make a song to touch the world and help many deal with adversities we’re faced with, but ‘That’s Life.’”

Over the last two decades, 88 Keys has crafted smash records and underground classics and broke out in 2008 with the single “Stay Up! (Viagra),” and collected a Grammy for “No Church in the Wild” with JAY-Z, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, and The-Dream.
