macklemore geminiMacklemore is back and riding solo on the follow-up to last year’s This Unruly Mess I’ve Made.

Although Gemini is his first solo release (without longtime collaborator Ryan Lewis) since 2009, he’s brought a bunch of other artists along to feature on this absolute belter of a new record. But he definitely seems in his element here – Gemini is remarkable from start to finish. It mostly leans towards hip hop, but he’s included everything from rock to even dubstep, and it really has to be heard to be believed. From Kesha on Good Old Days to Xperience on Church, there’s something – and someone – for everyone, if the singles he’s already dropped hadn’t made that clear enough. And, if you haven’t seen the video for Marmalade yet, do yourself a favour.

Gemini is out now via ADA/Warner.
