Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are teaming up with the indie/pop/alternative band, Fences, out of Seattle for a new song that has been in the works for a while now. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have teamed up with this group before, and worked with lead singer Christopher Mansfield, most notably on M&RL's Otherside Remix. Anyone that is a fan of the indie-pop scene will be an immediate fan of Fences and I highly recommend their first album, they will be releasing a new album in October. Check out Macklemore talking about his relationship with Fences and more in this interview. Feel free to download all of Macklemore x Ryan Lewis' past projects here.
I must say that I am happy that Macklemore x Ryan Lewis have yet to release any new music until now. If after blowing up the duo had just gone back to the studio and thought "we gotta make another 'Thrift Shop' we gotta keep it going." Thankfully, they did not. That is not me bagging on Thrift Shop, I still think it is a hella impressive and creative song, never intended to be a radio hit, the language he uses in the song is hardly ever played on the radio. Anyone that has been following Ben and Ryan's music knows that they will take their time to perfect it, and fans could wait 2, 3, 4 or ever 5 years until we hear a complete new album. This song is incredible. If you cannot wait to hear the CDQ version tomorrow morning then peep the live
