Public Enemy, the legendary hip hop outfit fronted by Chuck D and Flavor Flav—and the group responsible for one of the most danceable protest songs of all time—has said they will release two new albums this year, nearly three decades after they first started making music.

Over the weekend, they put out the first new song from these albums, which will be their first since 2007's How You Sell Soul to a Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul? No word yet which of the two albums—called Most of My Heroes Don’t Appear on No Stamp and The Evil Empire of Everything—the song will appear on, but if the rest of the tracks sound this good, both will be worth a listen.
