Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' sophomore album This Unruly Mess I've Made will be out Febuary 26, 2016.
Since releasing their grammy winning, debut albumThe Heist way back in 2012, the duo have remained fairly silent. They first previewed the upcoming album with the Ed Sheeran collaboration "Growing Up (Sloane's Song)" in early August of 2015. Shortly after, the pair danced themselves back into the mainstream with the riotous "Downtown." And most recently the two emotionally performed "Kevin" alongside new R&B star Leon Bridges at the American Music Awards.
Though we've known for some time that a new album was in the works, today they finally give us the projects title, artwork, and release date. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis offered the details with a video on their official website. The brief, 3 minute video opens in darkness as Macklemore begins to explain the motivations behind the album and continues with a behind-the-scenes look of their recording process.

After a 3 year break from releasing music, Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis have been building up steam towards their next album. The end their silence, the duo recently released "Downtown" as an upbeat genre blending song that was perfect for radio.
We see a much different, more serious side with the latest track "Kevin" featuring soul singer Leon Bridges, who has seen a quick rise to stardom this year. The song touches on addiction and prescription abuse offering more personal, deep subject matter than we saw with their last release. Everyone involved delivers a solid track, and one that has us looking towards the rest of the project, with no set date in place yet. Enjoy!
