At the end of June, Rayland Baxter announced that he would issue an EP of Mac Miller covers, good mmorning, on July 26 via ATO Records. With the seven-track collection due out in less than two weeks, the singer-songwriter has unveiled his take on the late hip-hop star’s “Come Back To Earth”.
Drawing on Miller’s final record, Baxter has reworked the tune off 2018’s excellent Swimming, drawing out the lyrics’ optimistic slant. Like the other songs on good mmorning, the singer builds on Miller’s wide-range of existing influences, with “Come Back To Earth” taking on a Motown-esque tone while still honoring the original’s musicality.
