DJ Shadow has shared a brand new song, “Rocket Fuel,” that features De La Soul. A press release says the song is taken from a yet-to-be-announced new album on Mass Appeal. It will also be featured on the Madden NFL 20 playlist coming out today. Listen to it below.

DJ Shadow had this to say about the song in a press release: “It’s been awhile since my last album The Mountain Will Fall, and the corresponding tour…and since the tour ended, I’ve been mostly silent. This is because I’ve been focused and working on a ton of music. I usually try to avoid hyperbole, and I’m not super-comfortable hyping up my own stuff, but things are about to get pretty exciting. My heroes De La Soul were kind enough to join me on the debut single, ‘Rocket Fuel,’ and the collab encapsulates so much of what I love about hip-hop…energy, beats, and fun.”

DJ Shadow’s last album was 2016’s The Mountain Will Fall. That was followed by the 2017-released four-song EP entitled The Mountain Has Fallen that included collaborations with Danny Brown, Nas, and Oscar winning composer Steven Price (Gravity, Suicide Squad, Attack the Block).
