88-Keys first new song in eight years.
A week after we got the first bit of “officially released” Mac Miller since his untimely passing we’ve been gifted with the strikingly beautiful “That’s Life.” The song marks the producer 88-Keys first solo release in eight years and also features some vocal contributions from Sia. If the song sounds familiar at all that’s most likely because you were lucky enough to be able to steal a listen to the leaked version of the track, “Benji The Dog,” that popped up online about a month ago and was subsequently scrubbed. from the Internet. This time around we don’t just get a verse from Mac, like on the Free Nationals “Time”, “That’s Life” is a completely led by Miller and he sings the heart-wrenching chorus as well, singing “Everybody live a little, everybody die / That’s life, whatchu gonna do?”
88-Keys spoke a bit about the track, saying, “‘That’s Life’ is a song which sums up the sentiments of the music I’ve been working on over the past few years. 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.'”
