Macklemore is back with brand new single ‘Maniac’ ft. Windser.
The up-tempo track was produced by Ryan Lewis and Budo and is accompanied by an official music video.
Macklemore commented, “The first time I heard Windser singing the hook on Maniac I fell in love with it. It’s infectious and relatable and I couldn’t get it out of my head. Maniac is about the euphoria of a relationship that isn’t perfect, but an addictive journey of the ups and downs that make you both who you are.”
The Jake Magraw-directed video is an ode to the classic 1960’s American entertainment shows and stars the Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum artist alongside a brief cameo by Nardwuar.
‘Maniac’ follows recently released uplifting comeback track ‘Chant’ ft. Tones And I. The accompanying music video was co-directed by Macklemore alongside Jake Magraw.
2022 marks 10 years since the release of Macklemore’s multiple Grammy Award-winning, chart topping, critically acclaimed album ‘The Heist’, which included No.1 hit singles ‘Thrift Shop’ and ‘Can’t Hold Us’.
