DJ Shadow has announced his first album in three years.

Titled 'Our Pathetic Age', the guest-heavy release is set to arrive on November 15 via Mass Appeal. Divided into two parts and made up of 23 tracks, the first 11 are instrumentals with the latter half boasting collaborations with Nas, Run The Jewels, Ghostface Killah, Wiki, and Raekwon, among others. 

Rocket Fuel with De La Soul arrived earlier in the year. Head below to listen to new single Urgent, Important, Please Read, featuring three decidedly obscure rappers, Rockwell Knuckles, Tef Poe, and Daemon. The track addresses a world increasingly dictated by technology and algorithms.

The London producer and DJ, real name Josh Davis, said:

"Despite the title, 'Our Pathetic Age' is a hopeful, vibrant album. As an artist, I feel an obligation to interpret the world around me, and there’s no denying that these are times fraught with angst and pain. Yet, always there is light in darkness, and that’s the energy I have sought to harness."

'Our Pathetic Age' marks DJ Shadow's first album since 2016’s 'The Mountain Will Fall'.
