His family begin the emotional post, 'Here we are. The act of having to write this at all feels surreal.'

They explain that he had been in the middle of writing Circles with Jon Brion.

When Mac passed, Brion, 'dedicated himself to finishing Circles based on his time and conversations with Malcolm.'

They explain it was very difficult for them as a family to decide on the best way to announce this news.

'One of the most difficult decisions in the process is how best to let people know about it...'

'How it should communicate meaningfully while keeping sacred what should be kept sacred.'
