Story of Song The stories behind the hits Novellic

“Circles” is sixth track from successful American singer and songwriter Post Malone (real name Austin Post), and his third studio album “Hollywood’s Bleeding”, which was released in early September 2019. “Circles” is Post Malone’s fourth #1 song on the charts.

“Circles” was written by Post Malone, Adam Feeney (aka Frank Dukes), Billy Walsh, Kaan Gunesberk and Louis Bell – with Gunesberk, Dukes and Bell in charge of the production of the track. “Circles” takes a different musical approach than Malone’s other songs, with a pop feel to the track rather than Malone’s signature rap sound. In an interview with Spotify, Post Malone shared his thoughts on the new track: “Another cool unique vibe. I was super inspired working in Toronto with Frank Dukes while sitting down playing the instruments. Super Fleetwood Mac vibe. A lot of my music is being about a glutton for pain. Knowing you are in a shitty situation, but you keep on going back.”

The music video was released via YouTube on the 3rd September 2019, directed by Colin Tilley, who has directed a multitude of music videos for many other well-known artists. The video shows Post as a medival knight, dressed in a suit of armor while he wanders across a war-torn countryside filled with what seems to be the undead. As of the 30th January 2020, the video has 157.6 million views with over 2.1 million likes.

    This is one of my 2 favorite songs by Mr.Malone….even though it is diff. From his usual style I long for him to do a duet with John Cougar
    Mellencamp…& Keith Urban on guitar. What a TRIO that would be!!!
