Mac Miller recruited Thundercat and Atlanta rapper J.I.D. as openers on his upcoming North American fall tour. The 26-date trek launches October 27th in San Francisco, California and concludes December 10th in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

General tickets go on sale Friday, July 27th at 10 a.m. local time via Live Nation. Pre-sale and premium tickets, including an exclusive screen-printed tour poster, go on sale Tuesday, July 24th at 10 a.m. local via Miller’s website.

In addition to announcing the jaunt, Miller also released a funky new song, “What’s the Use?” Over throbbing bass guitar and jazzy, atmospheric synthesizers, the emcee alternates between rapping and a double-tracked, falsetto-heavy croon. 

“What’s the Use?” is the third track Miller has released from his upcoming LP Swimming, following “Small Worlds” and “Self Care” (featuring John Mayer and Jon Brion). The LP, out August 3rd, also follows recent tracks “Buttons” and “Programs.”

Since issuing his 2016 LP, The Devine Feminine, Miller has appeared as a guest artist on several tracks, including Thundercat’s “Hi” and DJ Kay Slay’s “Cold Summer” (also featuring Kendrick Lamar, Kevin Gates and Rell).
