DJ Shadow Recruits Nas, Raekwon, De La Soul & More For ‘Our Pathetic Age’ Double Album

DJ Shadow has returned with Our Pathetic Era, his follow-up to 2016’s full-length effort The Mountain Will Fall. 

Packed with 26 tracks, the project features a roster of notable guests, including Nas, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Run The Jewels, De La Soul and Pharoahe Monch.

In September, the formidable producer/turntablist explained the concept of the album in an Instagram post.

“Despite the title, ‘Our Pathetic Age’ is a hopeful, vibrant album,” he captioned the video clip. “As an artist, I feel an obligation to interpret the world around me, and there’s no denying that these are times fraught with angst and pain. Yet, always there is light in darkness, and that’s the energy I have sought to harness.”

Our Pathetic Era arrives Mass Appeal Records. It marks the sixth entry in Shadow’s discography, which began in 1996 with the critically acclaimed Endtroducing… project.
