American rap duo Run The Jewels have dropped a new album Meow The Jewels, a collaborative project that saw various artists remix the duo’s album RTJ2 using cat sounds.
The project started as a joke pre-order package for RTJ2, which then quickly gained support to warrant a Kickstarter campaign. Upon achieving the $45 100 target, El-P got to work on the album. Just Blaze, Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, Blood Diamonds, Boots, Zola Jesus, the Alchemist, Massive Attack’s 3D all contributed remixes the Meow The Jewels.
