Macklemore and Ryan Lewis arrive today with the official video for their Leon Bridges-assisted "Kevin" track that they previously debuted at the American Music Awards. The video is co-directed by Lewis along with Jason Koenig, and opens with Macklemore in an abandoned house as he spits the first verses of the song saturated in a mixture of indistinct shadows and shots of natural light. The video seamlessly switches frame focus from Macklemore walking outside to Leon Bridges, who is waiting for the camera outside just in time to croon the sobering chorus. The two lead us around the empty rooms and neglected grounds as they tear through their emotionally pungent song about pill addiction.  

Watch the incredible video above and look for "Kevin" to be on Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' new album, This Unruly Mess I've Made, which drops tomorrow. For more on the pair, read our August/September 2015 cover story here.
