El-P, one half of Run The Jewels, has confirmed that their new album is arriving before they play Coachella festival in April.

Their highly-anticipated Run The Jewels 4 album will follow on from 2016's Run The Jewels 3 LP.

Back in December 2019, El-P revealed on Twitter that the new record is "very far along but not mixed/done yet plus gotta clear samples and shit so prolly out earlyish next year realistically. the good news is it’s hard as fuck."

Yesterday afternoon (13 January), El-P continued to answer fans' questions on their new record. One fan told them to "drop that album already. Or give us a date so we can have something to look forward to." El-P replied, "i do apologize for your stress. the album will be out before we play coachella and def not this month that’s all i can say now. we will announce a hard date soon."

Another fan told him to "not sweat these impatient clowns", and to put it out when they're ready, to which El-P responded, "I’m not mad at people wanting the record that’s love. but yeah i don’t have a choice but to wait until it’s mixed, mastered and ready to go."

Although it's been three years since Run The Jewels dropped Run The Jewels 3, the duo did team up with Danny Brown on "3 Tearz" in October 2019 for Brown's uknowhatimsayin¿ album.
