Mac Miller‘s 2014 mixtape Faces will be available on all streaming services for the first time since its release on October 15.

Faces first arrived as a free download on Mother’s Day following Miller’s sophomore album Watching Movies With The Sound Off and prior to his 2015 album GO:OD AM. The tape enlisted contributions from Earl Sweatshirt, Sir Michael Rocks of the Cool Kids, Vince Staples and several others.

One of the tracks off the project, “Colors and Shapes,” arrived today, along with an accompanying music video directed by Sam Mason. The visual follows a dog traversing imaginative dimensions in a storybook-like fashion.

“The track felt very visual to me—like it had its own world,” Mason said in a statement via Pitchfork. “This atmospheric nighttime place that was sometimes dangerous, sometimes comforting, then I saw a picture of [Mac Miller’s dog] Ralph and a story emerged.”

“To build it out I asked Malcolm’s family to send me bits and pieces from his childhood, scenes from the town where he grew up, objects, toys from his room—little pieces of his life that I extrapolated outwards and used to inspire the story,” he added. “In the abstract, it’s meant to be a video about childhood—growing up as an artist and the highs and lows of that experience. It’s sort of a look at the emotional and difficult and perilous but noble path of an artist.”

Along with the mixtape’s debut on streaming services, Faces will also become available in a new vinyl edition on October 15.

Elsewhere in music, Kanye West enlisted a sixth-grader on piano for his DONDA track “Come to Life.”
