Excerpt from the post
"Macklemore and Ryan Lewis dropped a short, bold film for their single “Same Love” off their forthcoming album, The Heist! The film is 7-minutes of witnessing a gay man’s life of “joy and pain…sunshine and rain” (Rob Base couldn’t explain the complex life any simpler). The visuals first introduce viewers to the glare from a hospital light in use during the process of a woman giving birth. The camera then focuses on the baby’s feet to depict the importance of his fresh, delicate skin, yet unmodified by contaminating kind. "

Same Love feat. Mary Lambert on iTunes:

"We support civil rights, and hope WA State voters will APPROVE REF 74 and legalize marriage equality. Visit http://www.music4marriage.org for more info. Support Marriage Equality by ordering the limited edition Same Love vinyl here: http://www.subpop.com/catalog/artists...
