DJ Shadow ft. De La Soul: Rocket Fuel

A new video landed today for the previously released De La Soul assisted track, which features on DJ Shadow’s latest album. The audio for Rocket Fuel first surfaced three months ago when the album was announced and served as the first single. The video features an alternative version of the faked moon landing theory, complete with a Stanley Kubrick lookalike and fighting astronauts. Shadow’s new album, Our Pathetic Age, is due for release tomorrow on Mass Appeal.

De La Soul: Royalty Capes

My favourite track from De La’s excellent And the Anonymous Nobody… album has just been given its own video. Featuring some triumphant horns and laced with Gina Loring’s poetry, Royalty Capes was a cracking opener to the album, which provided a welcome return for the Long Island rap outfit. The video was made by Alternate Ending and the album is available to buy here.

De La Soul: Sho Nuff

As if the prospect of a new De La Soul album wasn’t enough, a previously unheard track has surfaced, which was apparently recorded back in 1991. Originally made to be part of the De La Soul Is Dead album, the track never made the cut, but has now been made available for streaming and as a free download.
