On June 24, DJ Shadow will release his new album, The Mountain Will Fall, via Mass Appeal. Today, Shadow released a new track from the album, titled “Nobody Speak,” which features Run the Jewels. The track is a combination of Shadow’s signature beat-laden soundscape style and RTJ’s hard as fuck delivery.
“Occasionally, I make a beat that demands a specific vocal treatment and attitude,” Shadow says in a press release. “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.”
The song premiered on Beats 1 Radio, where DJ Shadow also announced he’ll be hosting three shows on the Apple Music streaming network.
The Mountain Will Fall follows 2011’s The Less You Know The Better.
