Mackelmore hasn't released a song in three years, instead choosing to take time off to probably go thrift shopping.

While he recently opened up about his experience relapsing on drugs, he saved his biggest news for Aug. 5, when he released his new single featuring none other than Ed Sheeran.



(Ed Sheeran just seems to be everywhere these days.)

Mackelmore explained the meaning behind the song and what brought him back to the studio in greater depth on his Instagram.

When you try to escape yourself, life has an interesting way of creating situations that force you to come back. To look at who you are. This is why "Growing up" felt like the right song to re-emerge with. It's where I've been the last year, through all the ups and downs. We didn't want to do a big campaign or anything over the top with this. We just wanted to put out good music, directly to the people that have been here since the beginning. Thank you for your patience. Hope you enjoy.

And if you're wondering…

Our daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty was born 2 months ago on May 29th. There is nothing like the joy and happiness that comes from bringing a baby into this universe. She has filled my heart in ways that I never knew were possible. She is the love of my life. This song is for her.

You may know him as the guy standing in the background messing with computers or something at the Macklemore concert you went to, but do you know exactly who he is or what he's doing? Apparently nobody else does either. With the help of Jimmy Fallon, Ryan Lewis hits the streets to find out exactly who can answer this perplexing question.
