DJ Shadow Reveals “Nobody Speak” Feat. Run The Jewels

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:
