GERMANY! We've added a show in DORTMUND!! March 24th at Westfalenhalle! Tickets will be available on FRIDAY at www.macklemore.com/shows
This one is personal... I started writing it when my friend Kevin passed from an overdose on prescription medication. It was my attempt to process his death. To grieve. And also to examine the over abundance of prescription drugs in America. How quick we're taught at an early age to put a pharmaceutical bandaid over our pain/anxiety.
Not only is the topic close to home because of Kevin and others that I've lost to pills, it's close to me because of my addiction. I've come very close to dying. I'm far from proud of that, but it's my truth. I wish I could say I'm cured. That I have it all figured out. But that's not the case. One day at a time I work to stay sober. There's so much more to say. And hopefully a bigger conversation to be had. But I didn't want to share this song without giving some context. I think of Kevin. I miss him. I hope he's somewhere listening to this... I hope he got to watch our performance last night. I hope he'd be proud.
We performed a new song last night at the AMA's... it's called Kevin and it features my friend @leonbridgesofficial. You can stream the song over at NPR: http://n.pr/1XlC5Ge (link in bio)

My heart goes out to Paris. One of my favorite places in the world for many reasons, but primarily because of the people. There is a love there I've felt, that I hold as one of my greatest experiences as a performer. Thinking of everyone affected by this terrible tragedy today and sending all my love.
