Two years back, Zack de la Rocha made magic with Killer Mike and El-P on Run the Jewels 2. Today the Rage Against the Machine singer is re-teaming with producer-mode El on "Digging for Windows," his first new music in more than 10 years. Listen to de la Rocha's grimy solo banger above, and get it as a free (legit) download via BitTorrent. Consequence of Sound reports that de la Rocha started working on his debut solo album not long after Rage pushed pause in 2000, recoring "upwards of 20 tracks with Trent Reznor, DJ Shadow, El-P, Questlove and others.
Though de la Rocha released music a few years back under the moniker One Day as a Lion, this marks the first time he's using his own name to promote a project. The vocalist recorded the track with producer El-P, his previous collaborator from when he appeared on the Run the Jewels song "Close Your Eyes (And Count to F-k). Stay tuned and see what else de la Rocha has up his sleeve.
Since Rage, de la Rocha has put out one record, in 2008, under his One Day Lion moniker with Jon Theodore. And yet, calm like a bomb, de la Rocha abruptly returns today with his debut solo single, digging for windows, produced by El-P. The two also worked together in 2014 for Run the Jewels’ Close Your Eyes . His reps have confirmed that digging for windows is, indeed, the lead single from a forthcoming debut solo album. And as an apology for that inevitably longer wait, de la Rocha has made the song a free download on BitTorrent and SoundCloud.

Zack de la Rocha returned on Thursday with his first new solo offering in over a decade. The rapper, known for his work with Rage Against the Machine, delivers bleak lines with claustrophobic urgency and stark force: I stare at a future so toxic/ No trust in the dust of a promise/ Won’t mark the name on a ballot/ So they can be free to devour our options. The song is the first off de la Rocha’s as-yet-untitled upcoming solo album, which is set for release sometime next year. El-P produced Digging For Windows, utilizing a terse, bruising beat and sludgy, battering-ram bassline. Matt Sweeney contributed spindly guitar to the track, while Nick Hook provided additional keys.
