New York, NY (Top40 Charts) DJ Shadow has unveiled a new song from his forthcoming album 'The Mountain Will Fall.' The track is titled "Nobody Speak," a collaboration with Run The Jewels. 'The Mountain Will Fall' will be released June 24 on Mass Appeal Records and includes the previously released title-track, deemed "rolling, meditative" by Vice Noisey and premiered by Pitchfork along with an in-depth first interview with DJ Shadow.
"Occasionally, I make a beat that demands a specific vocal treatment and attitude. 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." - DJ Shadow
"Shadow is a legend and a friend. When he makes music he often changes music forever. When he asked us to jump on the record we didn't blink." - El-P of Run The Jewels
"Nobody Speak" is part of the Run The Jewels' Record Store Day release this Saturday. The RSD exclusive, dubbed "VRTJ" is a Virtual Reality cardboard viewer that comes with a download code for the collaborative track.
