“We are honored and delighted to have had the opportunity to work with the amazing producers, vocalists, musicians, and artists who made this album happen,” one half of the duo, El-P, said in a statement.

Titled RTJ Cu4tro, all 11 tracks from the group’s latest album have been reworked with fresh takes from the likes of Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against The Machine, rappers Santa Fe Klan, Baco Exu do Blues, and Akapellah and Apache.

“We set out to make a remix album, but we consider the end result of RTJ Cu4tro to be more than that,” the rapper-producer continued. “It’s a reimagining of RTJ4 through the lens of collaboration and a fusing of numerous musical cultures and influences… a rare chance for us to connect, create, and be inspired by people who we may never have had the chance to get down with if we weren’t lucky enough to be in a position to put it all together.”

He concluded his statement, “We thank them for all their generosity, energy, and creativity,” describing the album as “filled with love, respect and craft and everyone truly gave it their all, genuinely humbling us in the process.”

Run The Jewels have shared a new version of their track “Walking in the Snow,” now titled “Caminando en la Nieve,” featuring Akapellah, Apache, and Pawmps. Check it out, below.

RTJ Cu4tro is set for release on Nov. 11.
