  • They’ve been teasing about it for months now, and today, we finally have new music to share from Run the Jewels. The unstoppable duo of Killer Mike and El-P have released the single “Talk to Me” from their forthcoming full-length, Run the Jewels 3. No release date yet, but Mr. Mike has said he wants it out before the end of the year. [Pitchfork]

  • On the whole other side of the spectrum, we’ve also got a new track from Joanna Newsom. This previously unreleased song comes from the sessions for last year’s full-length Divers. Her label, Drag City, promise more tracks from that album to come. [Under the Radar]

  • Hard to believe it’s been ten years, but yes, The Decemberists will be reissuing 2006’s The Crane Wife. This 5xLP box set will contain the original album on two LPs, three records of rare b-sides, bonus tracks, and previously unreleased material. You also get a Blu-ray of a two-hour Decemberists concert from 2006 at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., originally filmed for NPR. There’s a 20-page booklet, with liner notes by rock writer David Fricke, and an essay by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is a big Decemberists fan. Five hundred limited-edition copies of the reissue will be printed on marbled red vinyl. It’s the perfect gift for any Decemberists fan, and hits stores December 9th via Capitol Records/Universal Music Enterprises. [Pitchfork]

  • Following in her twin sister’s footsteps, Allison Crutchfield has signed to Merge Records for her debut solo full-length. (Sibling Katie Crutchfield records under the name Waxahatchee.) Titled Tourist In This Town, the album is slated for a January 27th release. Check out the single “Dean’s Room” below, paired with a video directed by Lara Jean Gallagher. [Stereogum]
