Run The Jewels gave their fans a surprise gift this Christmas with the early release of their new album,
In a message to fans, Run The Jewels said: “Fu*k it. We couldn’t help ourselves. It just feels right. After a crazy fu*king year and with a full tour about to set off we asked ourselves what we were waiting for… And we just couldn’t come up with a great answer.
"You’ve been with us since we started this thing and it’s made such a huge difference in our lives to have your energy and love. Thank you.
"So as a gift to all of you who have allowed us to continue to do what we love: RTJ3. We busted our asses on this one and we think we made something special this round.
"Grab it for free, buy it on any of the digital platforms you like or stream it. Physical copies will still be dropping in January as announced but until then: enjoy and we will see you on the road! With our love, Jaime and Mike.”
In addition to hip-hop’s top tag team of El-P and Killer Mike, Run The Jewels 3 also features Danny Brown, Tunde Adebimpe of TV On The Radio, BOOTS, Trina, and saxophonist Kamasi Washington.
In just over three years Run The Jewels have toured extensively taking their explosive live show around the world; unleashed two much-loved previous albums; raised money for charity via an unlikely cat-themed remix record; performed at Banksy’s Dismaland art installation; instigated art project Tag The Jewels; hosted their own globally broadcast radio show; inspired multiple Marvel comic book covers; become playable characters in a video game; ventured in to Virtual Reality; seen their fist and pistol gesture embraced as a salute of solidarity by music-lovers, and - most importantly of all - won over a growing worldwide army of loyal fans.
