This morning has already been full of surprise album details (looking at you J. Cole and Kid Cudi), but it’s not over just yet. Run the Jewels have been gearing up for the release of their Run the Jewels 3 album, with El-P tweeting about putting the finishing touches on production a few weeks back. We’ve also gotten a taste of new music with singles “Talk to Me” and “2100“.
Now El has come through the Twittersphere to let us know the project will be hitting our ears on January 13th and given us a look at the cover art for the new album. If you couldn’t have guessed it, our hands will continue to be stuck in a fist and gun position.
The album is available for pre-order through their website and is accompanied by a letter from the dynamic duo:
Holy Shit. We can’t believe we get to finally write this to you… RTJ3 IS READY!!!! After a straight year of work the next chapter in this madness is done. We’ll spare you too much talk but we will say this: thank you so much for making RUN THE JEWELS the most amazing experience either of us have had in our careers. We hope you feel the love and time we put in to this record and can’t wait to share it with you and see you out on the road. Whether you buy it, download it for free, steal it from your annoying cousin or hear it at a show, just know that we are eternally grateful for the love you’ve shown us. Thank you thank you thank you.
Jaime and Mike
That’s still not all! We ALSO got another single, “Legend Has It“, via Soundcloud. Needless to say, it’s an early holiday for RTJ fans. Listen to “Legend Has It” below and pre-order Run the Jewels 3 HERE!
