Feeling dead inside? Run The Jewels can wake you up a little. The rap duo have released a new single dedicated to "everyone who is hurting or scared right now." The pair say they wrote the song months ago (it seems it was planned for the upcoming Run The Jewels 3 album), but posted it up on Soundcloud this week for, well, you know why.

"It’s about fear and it’s about love and it’s about wanting more for all of us," wrote the duo. "It’s called 2100. We hope it finds you well."

The track starts with Killer Mike asking "How long before the hate that we hold lead us to another Holocaust?" before El-P offers to be your tour guide to the abyss. Run The Jewels 2 producer Boots is also present, asking anyone listening to "save my swollen heart." Listen to it yourself and get out of it whatever you can.
