This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Back in 2012, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were totally crushing it.
They came out with Thrift Shop and Can't Hold Us and everyone lost their minds all through 2013.
Then 2014 came… and while their music was still EVERYWHERE and they were celebrated as great new artists… that was about it.
Where's all the new music?? We need our newest Macklemore hit!
Well, so did a random fan on Twitter, who messaged Macklemore and actually got a response!
Woo! More Macklemore! Aww yeahhh!
According to sources there will be a new Macklemore album in 2015, most likely in the second half of the year.
No news yet on the lead single or release date but Macklemore himself confirmed it, and that's good enough for us!
