Earlier today (Jan. 1), Macklemore confirmed on his Twitter page that he (and presumably producer Ryan Lewis) will be releasing a new record in 2015. Their last album, 2012's The Heist, infamously took home Best Rap Album at the 56th Grammy Awards last year. Since then, the duo has been quiet on the musical front, though Lewis and his mother have made waves with their initiative to bring healthcare access to developing countries.

In December, Macklemore stopped by Hot 97 to discuss his role as a white hip-hop artist in the wake of the violence that rocked the last half of 2014.
