DJ Shadow announces UK tour
DJ Shadow has announced details of a new UK tour to celebrate the release of his new album.

‘The Outsider’ is set to hit the shops on August 25 – four years on from ‘The Private Press’, the follow-up to his debut ‘Entroducing…’.

In addition to the previously confirmed festival appearances at both legs of this year’s O2 Wireless shows, DJ Shadow has announced four UK dates in June where he will be performing with Keak Da Sneak & Turf Talk.

The dates are:

Bristol Blue Mountain (June 8)
London Fabric (9)
Liverpool Chibuku (10)
Nottingham Stealth (11)
London O2 Wireless Festival (23)
Leeds O2 Wireless Festival (24)
Liverpool Creamfields (August 26)

Speaking about ‘The Outsider’ on his official website, he said: “In some ways it's a risky record. It's going to turn some people off. And I think I'll lose some fans. On the other hand, I know I'll gain some new ones. That's a fair trade in my mind.”

He added: “Besides I can't see playing it safe at this point in my life. There's songs with samples and songs with no samples. There's very dark stuff and very light stuff. Fast and slow. Simple and complicated. And there's songs on this album that I think blow away almost anything else I've ever done, so... we'll see. I think song for song it's the best album I've ever made.”
