J. Cole just released a now-Gold certified album, but that doesn't mean fans will have to wait another two years for new music.

On the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the North Carolina native unveiled "High for Hours," a laid-back-yet-revolutionary jam co-produced by Elite and Cam O'bi.

"What good is taking over when we know what you gon do? The only real revolution happens right inside of you," spits Cole, contemplating the deeper meaning and effects of our actions over a chilled out, piano-driven production.

To call "High For Hours" a pleasant surprise—a track released late on a Sunday evening during a month that has, so far, produced very few exciting musical moments—would be an understatement.

It appears Cole had previously attended a class at the Donald Glover School of Sunday Night Music Releases.
