DJ Shadow has unveiled the first music video from his new album, ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ (out June 24 on Mass Appeal Records). The otherworldly, gorgeous video for the title track features an astronaut floating across a mysterious planet and hurtling through a distant universe synched to the song’s “rolling, meditative” (Vice Noisey) rhythm. The video was created and directed by Territory Studios, who has worked on some of the biggest films of the past few years (The Martian, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron), plus video games like Forza, Need For Speed, Killzone and more.
Says director Marti Romances: “As huge fans, it’s been a pleasure to collaborate with DJ Shadow on the graphics. We’re really excited by the project and look forward to an amazing come back. The peaceful and long momentum of the song inspired us to create something very unanimated and mysterious. The part we like the most is where we see the astronaut being shot into hyperspace and then we see that being part of that cosmic constellation at the end.”
DJ Shadow will host three Beats 1 shows this year, the first of which will air in June. The show will be called DJ Shadow Presents: #radioface. His BBC Essential Mix will debut on July 2.
‘The Mountain Will Fall’ is DJ Shadow’s first full-length release since 2011 and finds the groundbreaking artist shifting further toward original composition, experimentation, and live instrumentation. It features collaborations with Run The Jewels, Nils Frahm and Matthew Halsall amongst others.
