Three years ago, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis all but owned the musical landscape. Seemingly out of nowhere, the indie duo dominated with hits such as ‘Thrift Shop,’ ‘Can’t Hold Us,’ and seismic smash ‘Same Love.’
The latter, along with their debut album ‘The Heist,’ earned the group Grammys – sparking controversy as they bested popular releases from the likes of Kendrick Lamar to do so.
To weather the storm, the pair took an extended leave of absence from the spotlight and returned last Summer with funkified Hip-Hip ode ‘Downtown.’
The track peaked at a respectable #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and things have been relatively quiet since then.
All that is set to change though, because the group have formally announced their sophomore album and its release date – which is sooner than some may think.
In a reveal video (viewable below), Macklemore revealed that the LP is officially titled…
‘The Unruly Mess I’ve Made’
The set will land in stores on February 26th and will boast collaborations with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Leon Bridges.
After the debate their success birthed on their initial outing, will the public embrace this go round? The answer arrives in a month’s time.
