DJ Shadow announces new double album 'Our Pathetic Age'

Following on from his critically-praised 2016 album 'The Mountain Will Fall', DJ Shadow has now announced his plans for a new double album, arriving later this year.

The new 23-track full-length 'Our Pathetic Age' will see him link up with a wealth of guest artists including Run The Jewels, Ghostface Killah, Nas, Raekwon, Interpol's Paul Banks and many more, is being previewed by the new lead single 'Rosie', and is expected to arrive on the 15th November via Mass Appeal Records.

Speaking about his new release, the producer added, "More than anything, I try to get a sense of the mood of society as a whole. The subtle signals that humans send each other, the way people behave, their frustrations and ebbs and flows. In my part of the world, people are scared. There’s rampant homelessness, and a real fear of falling into generational poverty. People are addicted to, and addled by distraction; they’re angry and confused, and disaffected by their own governmental institutions. There’s songs that are inspired by this energy and seek to harness it, to make sense of it. In some cases, there’s attempts to salve the wound; in others, the songs merely observe but don’t offer solutions. Despite the title, it’s a hopeful, vibrant album...there is always light in darkness. I want it to reflect the times we live in, a signpost in the ground to mark the era...Our Pathetic Age."
