Background[edit]

Miller announced the album through social media on July 12, 2018, alongside its release date.[3]

Music and lyrics[edit]

Throughout the album, Miller's break up with pop singer Ariana Grande is a common theme of inspiration, as well as themes of self-love, healing and psychological growth, similar to themes explored in his previous album, The Divine Feminine (2016). Lyrically, The Independent stated Miller addresses the acknowledgment of his temper ('Wings') and the pitfalls of fame ('Small Worlds').[4]

Concerning the album's music, Rolling Stone noted Swimming is 'a continuation of 2016's The Divine Feminine, with a silky, deep vibe redolent of the L.A. alternative soul scene.'[5] The song 'So It Goes' has been said to incorporate 'muted guitars and a spacey synth drone', while 'Wings' has been described as 'a spacious neo soul slow burner punctuated by the occasional sigh of a violin.'[6]NME wrote that 'Ladders' is 'a buoyant radio ready bop, which sees his bars skitter across glorious brass lines and earworm riffs.'[7] 'Jet Fuel' was described as 'sluggish, dancehall-inflected trip hop', and 'What's the Use' as 'synth-funk'.[5]

Release and promotion[edit]

On May 30, 2018, Miller released the album's first single 'Small Worlds' and two non-album singles: 'Buttons' and 'Programs'.[8] The album was released on August 3, 2018, amongst other high-profiled albums, such as Astroworld by Travis Scott and Stay Dangerous by YG.[9]

The album's second single, 'Self Care', was released on July 13, 2018.[10] The album's third single, 'What's the Use?', was released on July 23, 2018.[11]

Swimming received generally positive reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 78, based on 13 reviews.[13] Meaghan Garvey of The Guardian described Swimming as 'a patient record in sound and concept' and 'an ambling 13-song journey towards self-acceptance, one that does not end in triumph.'[6] Colin McGowan of The A.V. Club complimented the album's production and vocal delivery: 'Miller sounds great when he's whining, croaking, stretching syllables like warm mozzarella. Swimming's spare, dreamy production allows him to do a lot of that.'[14] Evan Rytlewski of Pitchfork concluded: 'An album with nothing but time on its hands and an understanding that healing is a slow, tedious process, Swimming is most engaging when it details the simple things Miller tells himself to keep his spirits up.'[16] Kyle Mullin from Exclaim! enjoyed the album, saying, 'Whether Miller is singing on those funk-inflected highlights, or rapping on them with a flow that's airtight to their irresistible rhythms, he sounds like a would-be chart-topper, not to mention one of the most versatile and accomplished hip-hop artists working today.'[15] For NME, Hannah Mylrea concluded: 'Swimming isn't what you would have expected from Miller when he first started dropping mixtapes over a decade ago, but that doesn't matter. This album shows his growth as both an artist, and as a person who's had to deal with the most private aspects of their life being publicly dissected. It's a stellar – if somewhat overlong – artistic statement.'[7]

Mosi Reeves of Rolling Stone wrote that Swimming is Miller's 'most impactful album of his career', though noted a lack of lyrical depth: 'If he could surface those demons with more vivid details and add texture to his lyrics instead of simply using them as a rhythmic device, then he may have a genuinely classic album in him yet. But if Swimming doesn't quite achieve greatness, it connects. You can hear his pain and perseverance, even if he struggles to put it into words.'[5] Neil Z. Yeung of AllMusic concluded that 'Swimming is ample evidence that Miller can pick up the pieces and continue evolving, his grasp on thoughtful, introspective hip-hop getting stronger by the album.'[1] Trey Alston of Highsnobiety concluded that Swimming is 'the authentic self-destruction album so many artists have attempted before. Here, Mac is in rare form, chronicling his destruction and rebirth in a way that shows his acknowledgment of the path ahead, but reluctance to step on it without the certainty of companionship at the end. Whether he continues to walk that path is ultimately up to him, but the Mac that's featured on Swimming will find his way from the darkness. In the process, he's given us a beautiful means to mark the turn of his narrative.'[2]
