The new song “Circles” by Post Malone is an acoustic guitar-based song that is different than his usual rap sound. It has a melancholy tone that can be seen perhaps most prominently in the line “Seasons change and our love went cold.”

A new vulnerable side of Post Malone is seen with his new hit. In this song Post Malone reveals to the audience an internal struggle he faces. This is a sharp left turn from his past releases, which have all spoken about a more joyful side of life, and are often played as dance music and at parties.
