It’s RTJ for RSD!
Run The Jewels have become this year’s ambassadors for Record Store Day, which is set to take place on 21st April. Epically tweeting about becoming an ambassador, El-P said: “BRING ME MY SCEPTER AND CEREMONIAL ROBE, FOR @runjewels ARE THIS YEARS RECORD STORE DAY AMBASSADORS. I was told I can park anywhere now”. So there you go: RSD ambassadors apparently get parking privileges.
St Vincent was 2017’s ambassador to Record Store Day, accepting the honour with a Funny or Die sketch in which she became the ambassador to a little Russian island called Recordsta. Previous ambassadors have included Jack White, Dave Grohl, Iggy Pop and Metallica.
Earlier this week, Run The Jewels teamed up with BOOTS on ‘Delete Delete’, a track that also featured Cristin Milioti and Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, from the producer’s new EP, ‘#Darkdaze’.
Have a look at El-P’s tweet and revisit ‘Delete Delete’ below.
