Sub Pop has the great honor of releasing “Same Love,” a powerful new song from Seattle hip hop artists Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, on July 31st as a limited-edition, hand-numbered picture disc. There are only 2,000 of these 7" singles available.
“Same Love,” an appeal for support of same-sex marriage rights, is being released in conjunction with Music 4 Marriage Equality’s efforts to help approve Washington state’s Ref 74 this November. Polling shows that 54% of Washington state residents support same-sex marriage; if the referendum is approved, it could pave the way for marriage equality across the country.
In his accompanying statement, Macklemore says, “My hope is that my personal testimony can help in some way to not only advance the dialogue and approve Referendum 74, but also to help shape a culture of belonging in which all people are equal.”
Please join Sub Pop and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in the fight for marriage equality.
