Macklemore & ryan lewis’ new album features chance the rapper and idris elba
Next week, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will release their highly anticipated sophomore album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made. So far, we’ve heard four tracks from the project: “Downtown” featuring Eric Nally, Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, and Grandmaster Caz, “Growing Up” featuring Ed Sheeran, “Kevin” featuring Leon Bridges, and the controversial “White Privilege II” featuring Jamila Woods.
That collaborative spirit appears to be fueling the rest of the 13-song project, judging by the tracklist that Macklemore and Lewis revealed on Monday. The Seattle duo have apparently enlisted Chance the Rapper, YG, KRS-One, Anderson .Paak, and Idris Elba (yes, that Idris Elba) for other features on the LP, which drops Feb. 26.
Besides teasing the follow-up to 2012’s The Heist, Macklemore and Lewis also released a new non-album cut on Valentine’s Day called “Spoons.” Dedicated to the “lovers out there,” it finds Mack delivering an innuendo-filled narrative about spooning against a pretty piano melody.
