The new track arrives after last month's "Talk To Me", which previews their upcoming third record. El-P says that it wasn't written directly about the US election, but it "seems to fit" - in a statement shared with the single, the producer/rapper says "it's about fear and it's about love and it's about wanting more for all of us".
Run The Jewels 3 will follow 2014's Run The Jewels 2 when it finally arrives - there's no release date yet, but El-P said earlier this year it might be out before 2016's end.
Although they've not released a record in two years - today, 24 October, is actually the second birthday of their second record - Killer Mike and El-P have definitely been busy. Last year they released a reworked version of Run The Jewels 2 made entirely of cat sounds.
we didnt write this song about the election. we wrote it about something bigger and we wrote it several months ago. seems to fit though.— el-p (@therealelp) November 10, 2016
