UPDATE: Run the Jewels surprise-released their new album Run the Jewels 3 on Christmas Eve, three weeks before their planned January 13th release. Stream the album below.
Run the Jewels revealed a first look at what’s in store for their highly anticipated new album, Run the Jewels 3 in a new trailer. New track “Legend Has It” plays over live footage of El-P and Killer Mike stoking audiences and culminates with an endearing shot of El and Mike exchanging a hug backstage.
Run the Jewels 3 arrives January 13th. Like the duo’s previous records, the record will be available as a free download. Physical CD and vinyl versions are also available to pre-order for free. RTJ3 follows the duo’s 2014 album, Run the Jewels 2 and their 2013 self-titled debut.
Run the Jewels released two other new songs from RTJ3, “Talk to Me” and “2100,” which features Boots and confirmed guest spots from Danny Brown, Trina, saxophonist Kamasi Washington, TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe and singer Joi Gilliam. Run the Jewels will begin touring in North America starting January 11th in Philadelphia.
