The comeback man tells NME.COM he's "an unequivocal fan"...

DJ SHADOW has revealed that he is desperately keen work with Radiohead on any forthcoming new material the band write.

Speaking to NME.COM ahead of the long-awaited release of his forthcoming second solo album, the super-producer - real name Josh Davis - also poo-pooed the idea that his 1996 debut 'Entroducing' was the Best Dance Album ever. Muzik magazine installed it at Number One in a recent poll.

Of Radiohead, he said: "That would be amazing if they did ask me to work on something. They routinely ask me to tour with them, but the timing always seems to be wrong [DJ Shadow toured with the band in 1997]. Hopefully they haven't given up on me yet because I'd really like to do something with them. I'm an unequivocal fan of that group."

Shadow releases new album 'Private Press' on May 27. Of 'Entroducing' he said:
"I certainly don't think it's the best dance album ever made. Its not the best anything album ever made, in my opinion.

"My few that I always refer to are Public Enemy, 'It Takes A Nation of Millions...', Ice Cube's 'AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted', James Brown's 'In the Jungle Groove', De La Soul's '3 Feet High and Rising' or OutKast's 'Stankonia'."

He said the new album is "a challenging listening experience but hopefully an enjoyable one too". He will return to the UK in May for a number of live dates. A single, 'U Can't Go Home Again', precedes the album on May 13.
