Last night, Macklemore tweeteed that he would be dropping a new song today. The Seattle-raised recording artist said “Tomorrow morning we’re releasing a brand new song. One that I’ve wanted to put out for a while. Seems like the time is right….”.
Today, alongside producer Ryan Lewis, he dropped “Same Love”. The new song speaks on homosexuality and culture’s non-accepting nature of it.
We assume that Macklemore decided that now was a good time to drop the track because of Frank Ocean’s recent revelation.
As for the song itself, Macklemore does as Macklemore does and delievers a passionate storytelling experience that hooks the listener and makes them feel some emotions.
“Same Love” his iTunes July 24th. You can also find it on Macklemore’s “The Heist” LP, dropping October 9th. You can also catch him and Ryan Lewis on the road this year for their “The Heist World Tour”. Details can be found here.
