DJ Shadow unveils first music video for upcoming album
On the verge of a European tour, DJ Shadow has finally unveiled the very first music video for his forthcoming new album, “The Mountain Will Fall.” Directed by Marti Romances, the video for the title track takes viewers straight to outer space, chronicling the journey of an astronaut as he floats through the atmosphere of a fictional planet in a foreign universe. Mysterious and visually hypnotic, the video is the perfect accompaniment to the ethereal, atmospheric title track. It should come as no surprise that the video’s producers, Territory Studios, have also worked on films like The Martian and Guardians of the Galaxy.
“As huge fans, it’s been a pleasure to collaborate with DJ Shadow on the graphics. We’re really excited by the project and look forward to an amazing come back,” said director Marti Romances. “The peaceful and long momentum of the song inspired us to create something very unanimated and mysterious. The part we like the most is where we see the astronaut being shot into hyperspace and then we see that being part of that cosmic constellation at the end.”
