Earlier this year, Miller’s posthumous album “Circles” was released. It debuted at number 3 on the Billboard chart. At the time, his family said it was meant to be a companion album to “Swimming.”
Cameron Pettit, Stephen Walter, and Ryan Reavis are accused of selling Miller the drugs that led to his overdose.
