Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have paired up with Ed Sheeran for their first release since grammy winning album “The Heist” in 2012. In this sweet and deeply personal song Macklemore gives his baby daughter advice about growing up and reflects on how he is still trying to grow up himself. In a letter to fans he wrote:
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.
