Ed Sheeran, Macklemore

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are hoping to clean up with their long-awaited second album -- This Unruly Mess I've Made.

The disc, which is due for release on February 26, includes the singles "Downtown" and "Growing Up," as well as the drug-abuse tale "Kevin," which they previewed on the American Music Awards late last year.

Speaking about the album's creative process in an expletive-laden video, Mack says, "I was too comfortable, and comfort is what kills art. There is creativity for validation, and there is creativity for survival. I had to figure out how to use my voice again."
