Day 40 Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Starting Over feat. Ben Bridwell from Band of Horses

The simple honesty of Starting Over is humbling to say the least. Featuring vocals and guitars from Ben Bridwell, (Band of Horses) Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ debut album offers up this beautifully honest and poetic song which comes straight from the heart. After a well publicised three year period of being sober, Macklemore admits (rumoured not even his family and friends knew before this release) that he had relapsed with Starting Over his way of opening-up to the world and revealing the troubling nature of his truth. The simple guitar backing and steady beat elevates the emotional importance of the lyrics as Starting Over‘s message and apology paints a picture of his troubled reality, showing the overpowering personal importance that this song holds to him.
