DJ Shadow has revealed the second single from his forthcoming album ‘The Mountain Will Fall.’ The track is titled “Nobody Speak,” and is a collaboration with Run the Jewels. First premiered on Beats1 with Julie Adenuga & on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, the track is now available for stream on the Mass Appeal Records SoundCloud.
“Occasionally, I make a beat that demands a specific vocal treatment and attitude. In the case of ‘Nobody Speak,’ I wasn’t going to settle for anyone other than Run The Jewels; in my mind, it was them or no one. Fortunately, they agreed, and they took the track to a place I could never get to on my own. That’s the definition of a rewarding collaboration.” – DJ Shadow
“Shadow is a legend and a friend. When he makes music he often changes music forever. When he asked us to jump on the record we didn’t blink.” – El-P of Run The Jewels
“Nobody Speak” is part of the Run The Jewels’ Record Store Day release this Saturday. The RSD exclusive, dubbed “VRTJ” is a Virtual Reality cardboard viewer that comes with a download code for the collaborative track.
The Mountain Will Fall will be released on Mass Appeal Records on June 24, 2016. Pre-order the album here: https://DJShadow.lnk.to/TMWFPR
