DJ Shadow has announced an ambitious double album – Our Pathetic Age – out November 15 on Mass Appeal. Our
Pathetic Age is the result of an intensely creative period that found the hip-hop and electronic innovator delving further
into original composition and experimentation. The first half of Our Pathetic Age features 11 new instrumental works
that balance some of Shadow’s most menacing sounds with beams of hope, including his first fully composed orchestral
piece. Today he has released a new song from the instrumental half of the album, listen to “Rosie”: LINK
The second half of Our Pathetic Age is a full album of vocal collaborations, ranging from Run The Jewels, Nas and Dave
East to Sam Herring, Paul Banks and Wiki, Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon. Shadow notably reunites with
his early Solesides collaborators Lateef The Truthseeker and Gift of Gab (Blackalicious). It also features St. Louis MCs
Rockwell Knuckles and Tef Poe, fellow Bay Area musicians Fantastic Negrito and Jumbo is Dr.ama, and Brookyln MC
Stro. Full track list with collaborators is below.
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 on
the record 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. I want the album to reflect the times
we live in, a signpost in the ground to mark the era…Our Pathetic Age. – DJ Shadow
In July, DJ Shadow unveiled his first new music in two years – “Rocket Fuel” featuring De La Soul, which is included on
the album and also featured on the Madden 20 soundtrack.
The album was produced by DJ Shadow, and the album art was created by Paul Insect, who also designed Shadow’s The
Mountain Will Fall and Outsider covers.

DJ Shadow’s The Mountain Will Fall (released in 2016 on Mass Appeal) was widely celebrated
and led to a performance of “Nobody Speak” with Run The Jewels on the Tonight Show, his first #1 on Billboard’s
Dance/Electronic chart, and nearly 100 dates of international touring that included Coachella and Pitchfork Paris.
“Nobody Speak,” deemed “brassy and bruising” by Rolling Stone, was featured in multiple films and commercials, and
was the most played hip-hop song on alternative radio in 2018.
