Yoshi Flower Spreads Late Mac Miller’s “Good News”

Singer/songwriter Yoshi Flower has recently paid proper homage to the late legend of Mac Miller by recording his own version of Miller’s “Good News”. Flower stays true to the track while also adding his own acoustic sound. The lyrics still hit right to the heart (especially after his passing), as Miller intended. 

It is a perfect tribute that builds energy throughout, and Flower’s vocals are simply easy on the ears. 

Flower explains why he was so devastated by Miller’s death: “Mac’s passing was the last straw,” he says.I remember the day I found out – I was making music with friends. We were devastated. In that moment the myth of the ‘Rock ‘n Roll Lifestyle died, in my eyes. To see his bright light suddenly go out was something we couldn’t comprehend. Even with this knowledge, it took time for me to hit my bottom. I made this cover as a tribute to Mac, a song to spread healing.”

Flower compiled his songs and released an EP on July 27, where “Good News” is the highlight track. According to Flower, “ALL proceeds will be donated to organizations and recovery programs for those struggling with addiction and/or their mental health.

This track will bring you an amazing amount of nostalgia that will send you into a Spotify spiral down the discography of Miller and/or Flower. I could listen to the song on repeat all day.
