The producer will release a new album later this year...

DJ Shadow has shared his new single 'Rocket Fuel' - featuring hip-hop legends De La Soul.

The producer is working on new material, with his next studio album set to land later this year.

The first blow features some true rap giants, with 'Rocket Fuel' pitting DJ Shadow's horn-laden arrangement against Daisy Age heroes De La Soul.

Matching two absolute legends in the game, 'Rocket Fuel' is more than just novelty, a bombastic rap slayer with a deep-rooted sense of physicality.

Set to feature on the Madden NFL 20 video game playlist, it's a sign that the ambitions of both DJ Shadow and De La Soul remain undaunted in the 21st century.

DJ Shadow comments...

“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, but things are about to get very exciting around here. For Rocket Fuel, my heroes De La Soul join me in a collaborative blast of pure hip-hop adrenalin.”

Tune in now.
