Macklemore and Ryan Lewis hat

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis just released Thrift Shop, the second single off of his upcoming album The Heist. It will be available on iTunes later today, and we will update this post when it is released! Macklemore has recently been running a photo contest for his fans to post their best photo of them in a Thrift Shop with their best thrift store finds!

It’s been cool to watch what people come up with for promoting their album. Macklemore will also be promoting his upcoming album release with a night dedicated to him and Ryan Lewis on Friday, August 31st! It  includes a free hat to the first fans in the specified section. If you would like more information, you can find it on the Seattle Mariners website.

Macklemore has done a great job promoting this album, and I’m hoping that it helps promote Northwest music as well. What do you think about the new song and Macklemore’s recent promotion tactics?
