Macklemore has released a commentary track on last week's depressing election. On a track produced by Budo, "Wednesday Morning" gives us the answer to what we (apparently) were all wondering: What was the day after the election like for Macklemore?

As with previous tracks, the MC is a bit cloying, but well-intentioned, with righteous lyrics, including:

And we fight for the people that haven't had a voice
Fight for the first amendment, fight for freedom of choice
Fight for women's rights, if she does or doesn't care
We ride for all the queer folk and fight for all to get married

Macklemore also informs us that he is NOT moving to Canada, and will stay here to fight the good fight. Take that, Sienna Miller!

He wishes for clarity and safety for his baby daughter in the uncertain future; Macklemore throws in the poignant message, "When we oppress anyone, we oppress ourselves," adding, "This isn't the apocalypse--we can't address the hate until we acknowledge it."

Pushed so far, Macklemore is moving me.
