DJ Shadow will release Our Pathetic Age, his first album in three years, on November 15 via Mass Appeal. It’s a double album: the first half is all instrumentals; the second half features collaborations with Nas, Run the Jewels, De La Soul (the previously released “Rocket Fuel”), Dave East, Samuel T Herring (Future Islands), Wiki, Paul Banks (Interpol), Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah, and Raekwon, and more. On the new album, DJ Shadow has this to say:

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 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. Despite the title, it’s a hopeful, vibrant album…there is always light in darkness. I want it to reflect the times we live in, a signpost in the ground to mark the era…Our Pathetic Age.

You can listen to one of the instrumentals, “Rosie,” and “Rocket Fuel,” and check out the full tracklist with contributors, below.
