Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have just released an epic trailer announcing their follow up to their break through 2012 album The Heist.
Titled This Unruly Mess I’ve Made, the album took Macklemore out of the city and into the wild in search for inspiration.
“What I couldn’t find in a hotel room, on the road, or even in Seattle, I found in the middle of nowhere,” the MC narrates over the video.
“I was too comfortable and being comfortable is what kills artists. There is creativity for validation, and there is creativity for survival … making music not because we had to, but because we got to…”
“Not creating from a place of ‘don’t f**k it up’ but creating from a place of ‘F**k it up’.”
Set for release on 26th February the album will feature previously released tracks such as Downtown, the powerful pharmaceutical industry critique Kevin (ft. Leon Bridges)’, and the 2015 Ed Sheeran collab Growing Up (Sloane’s Song).
