Boasting 11 tracks, the project features Greg Nice, DJ Premier, Zack de la Rocha, 2 Chainz, Pharrell Williams, Mavis Staples and Josh Homme. The album includes the previously released singles “Yankee and the Brave (Ep. 4)” and “Ooh LA LA.”
As noted in the press release, RTJ4 was recorded primarily at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La Studios in Malibu and the iconic Electric LadyStudios in New York City. It “represents two years of intensive writing, recording, distilling and amplifying the most potent elements of their music” resulting in “pointed social commentary and raw, boisterous fun.”
In addition to the new album, the Grammy Award-nominated duo is launching their much-anticipated cannabis line with the founder of the legendary Cookies strain and will embark on a tour with the recently reunited Rage Against The Machine, which was rescheduled for 2021 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The run is already sold out.
