Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Resurface on Fences' "Arrows"

After sweeping the rap categories at the 2014 GRAMMYsMacklemore and Ryan Lewis have stayed relatively quiet on the artistic front save for the occasional shoe collaboration or viral video. The rapper/producer pair have resurfaced on a track with fellow Seattle-based act Fences. The alt-pop quartet snagged Mack for a verse and Lewis to produce their new single "Arrows."

Indicating Lewis' production versatility, there's a rocking, kick drum-heavy beat that backs the smoky vocals of Fences' lead singer Christopher Mansfield. Mack comes in for his section, spitting inspirational lyrics over a subtle mix of bass and synths.

According to Billboard, it's not the first time Fences has teamed up with the award-winning duo. Mansfield co-wrote "10,000 Hours," a song on Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' breakout LP The Heist.

"Arrows" is featured on Fences' upcoming album Lesser Oceans, which features songs produced by Death Cab for Cutie guitarist Chris Walla. Look out for the record dropping October 14.
