Well, it’s been awhile since my last album The Mountain Will Fall, and the corresponding tour…and since the tour ended, I’ve been mostly silent. This is because I’ve been focused and working on a ton of music. I usually try to avoid hyperbole, and I’m not super-comfortable hyping up my own stuff, but things are about to get VERY exciting around here. I figure you deserve to hear all the big news first.
New DJ Shadow Album Coming This Year
Yes, there will be an album release this year. Work began in February of 2018, and continues as of this writing. As with The Mountain Will Fall, it’s coming out on Mass Appeal Records/Liquid Amber. While the exact release date is still TBA, here’s your first taste, in the form of:
New DJ Shadow single “Rocket Fuel” featuring De La Soul out now
To celebrate its inclusion in EA Sports’ upcoming Madden NFL 20, “Rocket Fuel” launched worldwide today, with a video to follow. My heroes De La Soul join me in a collaborative blast of pure hip-hop adrenaline. Hear it right here.
We’re also pressing limited 7″ vinyl 45 of the song, available for two days only. Where? Here:
Announcing the 4th Annual DJ Shadow Storage Sale
It’s that time again! Rappcats and DJ Shadow present the 4th Annual DJ Shadow Storage Sale. I’ve dug out a fresh assortment of thousands of LPs, 45s, and 12″s (not to mention CDs, cassettes, posters, etc) from my various warehouses, and they’ll be waiting for you at my annual pop-up store.

I’ll be there all day, both days, saying hi, playing music, and signing stuff. And, while supplies last, you can cop the EXCLUSIVE “Rocket Fuel” 45.
As always, I appreciate everyone’s support through the years. I’m not very active on social media (to put it mildly), and I know that sometimes it must feel like I’ve fallen off the face of the earth. Just know that I’ve been using my time wisely, making an album that I’m very proud of. I can’t promise that I’ll be as visible or as vocal as other artists, but I will continue to keep you updated on anything important via my email list, which you can sign up for here.
I’m looking forward to sharing everything that I’ve been up to.
