DJ SHADOW has promised that his forthcoming third album will be “very different”.

The reclusive DJ is still working on the follow-up to 2002’s The Private Press but has released the video for a track called 3 Freaks, featuring underground rappers Keak Da Sneak and Turf Talk.

It can be streamed from DJ Shadow’s website djshadow.com

Commenting on the album via his website, Shadow said that stylistically, ‘it’s very different from The Private Press’.

“Some have said Press was an inward-looking album,” he continued. “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.”

Fans can catch DJ Shadow later this year at the 02 Wireless Festival in Hyde Park on June 23 and at Leeds Harewood House on June 24.
