Listen: Run The Jewels return with new track ‘The Yankee and the Brave’

Finally, some 2020 news we can rally behind

Killer Mike and El-P began teasing that new Run The Jewels material was on its way last week, and the duo did not disappoint with the release of “The Yankee and the Brave” over Instagram on Sunday night.

It’s the first release from the forthcoming RTJ4 record, which does not currently have a release date. Check out “The Yankee and the Brave” below.

El-P also confirmed via Twitter that RTJ4, like previous albums, will be available for free download once it drops.

“Like every album we’ve done #RTJ4 will be available in all the normal places but also as a free download,” El-P said in a tweet Sunday. “This is for anyone who doesn’t feel like they have a budget for music right now or for anyone who isn’t sure they fuck with us yet.”

Run The Jewels were set to open for Rage Against The Machine on their massive spring and summer tour, which has had some dates already fall victim to postponement due to COVID-19.
