Gemini (stylized GEMINI) is the second solo studio album by American rapper Macklemore. It was released on September 22, 2017, via Bendo LLC. The album was supported by three singles: "Glorious", "Marmalade" and "Good Old Days".
Gemini is Macklemore's first album without Ryan Lewis since the release of his solo album The Language of My World (2005). In an interview with Rolling Stone, Macklemore said of the album: "It's not extremely politically motivated or heavily subject- or concept-oriented. I think it's mostly the music that I wanted to hear. It's the music that I wanted to go get into my car and listen to. I wanted it to be fun." He told Beats 1 radio host Zane Lowe about his new approach for this album: "I always try to get a different pallet of sounds and textures and vibes. This album, I was in a good place man. There's some darker songs, for sure, but for the most part, if I'm in a happy place and life is good, that's going to be reflected in the music."
On August 22, 2017, Macklemore unveiled the album's track list and cover art. He released a video teaser of the song "Willy Wonka", a collaboration with Offset, on September 8, 2017. It features behind-the-scenes footage of the recording process.
"Glorious" was released as the lead single from the album on June 15, 2017. It features a guest appearance from American singer Skylar Grey. Its music video was released on July 6, 2017, in which Macklemore was seen traveling around Modesto, California with his grandmother.
The second single from the album, "Marmalade", was released on July 26, 2017. It features a guest appearance from American rapper Lil Yachty.
The collaboration with American singer-songwriter Kesha, "Good Old Days" was released as a promotional single from the album on September 19, 2017. It was sent to adult contemporary radio October 9, 2017, as the album's third single.
