DJ Shadow – Rosie

DJ Shadow’s latest album Our Pathetic Age and a dense and multi-faceted new song ‘Rosie’.

In a statement, DJ Shadow explained how Our Pathetic Age was borne out of his desire to make sense of “the mood of society as a whole,” from income inequality and homelessness to distraction and disaffection. “There’s songs that are inspired by this energy and seek to harness it, to make sense of it,” he said. “In some cases, there’s attempts to salve the wound; in others, the songs merely observe but don’t offer solutions. Despite the title, it’s a hopeful, vibrant album… there is always light in darkness. I want it to reflect the times we live in, a signpost in the ground to mark the era.”
