HOT off the back of his storming performance at Hyde Park’s Wireless Festival, DJ Shadow has announced an exclusive London show in August.

The DJ legend will be at Koko in Camden on Tuesday, August 29, to coincide with the release of his eagerly-anticipated new album, The Outsider, out on the same day.

Tickets cost £17.50 and go on sale on Saturday, July 1, from 9am.

As previously reported on IndieLondon, DJ Shadow has promised that his forthcoming third album will be “very different”.

“Some have said The Private Press was an inward-looking album,” he commented. “If that’s true, than this album is the opposite, and that suits me just fine. I’ve also stopped worrying if my changing taste in music costs me fans. You can’t please everybody all the time, but you can please yourself.”

A video for a track called 3 Freaks, featuring underground rappers Keak Da Sneak and Turf Talk, can currently be seen from DJ Shadow’s website
