Post Malone ruminates on a fleeting relationship in his new single, “Circles.” The song precedes the release of his forthcoming album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, due out on September 6th.
On the pensive, acoustic guitar-led “Circles,” the musician contemplates letting go of a relationship that’s not coming together and risk being the “bad guy” acknowledging that it’s not working, or letting it run a different course. However, the couple continues to be drawn back to each other despite the signs pointing to its demise. “Seasons change and our love went cold/Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go,” he sings on the chorus. “Run away, but we’re running in circles/Run away, run away/I dare you to do something/I’m waiting on you again, so I don’t take the blame.”
