Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels (CD)
Run the Jewels released their sophomore album Run The Jewels 2 in October 2014, which went onto universal critical acclaim. The album went on to receive multiple year end accolades including: 2014’s #1 Album of the Year (Pitchfork, Stereogum, USA Today, Complex, London Evening Standard, etc), Album of the Year List (Billboard, Consequence of Sound, Rolling Stone, NME, NPR, Entertainment Weekly, Spin, Newsweek, etc), Song of the Year List (Spin, NME, Time, etc) and more! Their press coverage has extended to far beyond just music publications, with features running in Slate, Gizmodo, Fast Company, CNN, US Weekly, Huffington Post, etc. Since the album release, the duo has gone to finish a nearly sold out 45+ date Wolrld Tour. Furthermore, a kickstarter project based off of remixing the album with cat sounds, entitled “Meow the Jewels” went viral and raised over $65,000; this project is set to release later this summer.
Due to an overwhelming high demand, the group will be re-issuing a physical version of their now-classic first album, Run The Jewels, for the first time since 2013. This album was named Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” upon release and features Big Boi, Prince Paul and Until the Ribbon Breaks.
