Macklemore doesn’t seem to stop, his career is littered with award winning tracks, contributions and comedic videos that showcases the rapper’s raw talent. Today, the rapper has announced to Pitchfork, that his second solo album is coming.
Gemini, the first solo album for Macklemore in the last 12 years is set to be released on September 22. Macklemore lays out the details to Pitchfork including a tracklist and cover art for the new record.
The Thrift Store star is flying alone without Ryan Lewis and has brought on a heavy list of musical acts to help contribute to his new project. The album will feature contributions from Lil Yachty, Offset, Kesha, and many more. Macklemore has already released two of the tracks from the album in the last few months. It will feature Macklemore’s recently shared track “Glorious,” with vocals from Skylar Grey which he dropped two months ago as well as “Marmalade” with Lil Yachty which was released only last month. The whole album is filled with guest appearances and it seems like there is only one track that Macklemore is performing alone.
