Listen Run The Jewels join forces with Royal Blood for new version of ‘The Ground Below’
“Mike and I thought it would be cool to get Royal Blood’s take on ‘The Ground Below’ - we sent it off to them and they f*cking killed it.”
With the original version appearing on their June album ‘RTJ4’, Run The Jewels have joined forces with Royal Blood for a new version of ‘The Ground Below’.
“We’re big fans of each other’s bands”, explains El-P. “A while back, we hung out and played each other songs we love - one of mine was Gang Of Four’s Ether, which I later sampled for ‘The Ground Below’. Mike and I thought it would be cool to get Royal Blood’s take on ‘The Ground Below’ - we sent it off to them and they f*cking killed it.”
Royal Blood add, “Royal Jewels is the ultimate dream come true scenario. It’s an alliance we wish long continues.”
