From eagerly awaited new Shadow album, due this summer.
By Barbi Martinez
Talking recently to Pitchfork DJ Shadow advised, “Sometimes records are a struggle. This record, I knew exactly what I wanted to get across.” The record he’s referring to is The Mountain Will Fall, set to be released sometime this summer. He hasn’t put out a full length in nearly 5 years, in fact; 2011’s when The Less You Know, the Better arrived.
Below, listen to the forthcoming title track, which sounds to some of our staffers’ ears like a pisstake on synth-“god” (term used loosely) Vangelis, but hell, what do we know? At least Jon Anderson’s not singing…. Seriously, Josh, all respect.
