The song surfaces as part of the Adult Swim Singles Program.

Hard-hitting rap duo Run the Jewels is back with new music, proving the two are more fired up than ever. In anticipation of their upcoming album RTJ3, the two celebrated the two-year anniversary of RTJ2 with new music on Monday (Oct. 24). As part of the Adult Swim Singles Program, they have shared their latest song "Talk To Me."

The politically pungent track airs on the side of hope, as it opens with the forward-thinking line, "We return from the depths of the badlands." The two then sprinkle in humor, speaking of a man who "wore a bad toupee and a spray tan." All the while, their signature surging production adds to the intense intention heard throughout. 

Last month, RTJ released "Panther Like A Panther," a song that soundtracked the trailer for the video game Gears of War 4, which they are both playable characters in. Additionally, the duo will perform at the inaugural Sound on Sound festival in Austin on Nov. 4th. 

Give "Talk To Me" a listen below.
