DOOM hasn't released a solo album since 2009's Born Like This and Jay Electronica might never release his full-length debut—this July marks 10 years since the Roc Nation emcee released Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge)—but later this year, the two rap veterans will unleash a collaborative single as a part of the Adult Swim Singles Program.

On Wednesday (May 31), Jason DeMarco, the VP and Creative Director for Adult Swim, tweeted a list of 2017 program participants, which, in addition to DOOM and Jay Elect, includes Father, Jonwayne, Knxwledge, Thundercat, Waka Flocka, Your Old Droog and more.

During a performance at SXSW in 2016, DOOM teased a collaborative record with Jay entitled "Light Years," but according to DeMarco, their Adult Swim single contribution is a "brand new jam."
