Over the last couple of months, DJ Shadow has shared a couple of new tracks — including "The Mountain Will Fall" and "Nobody Speak," featuring Run The Jewels — in anticipation of the release of his first new body of work in many years, The Mountain Will Fall, which is all ours on June 24 via Mass Appeal Records. Today he has broken off another bit of that project, a slithering collaboration with German composer and producer Nils Frahm titled "Bergschrund."

“Nils Frahm is an insanely smart composer," Shadow told The FADER in an email. "He created a sinewy, gated vintage synth line which I then expanded upon, hopefully to complimentary effect. Our track is called 'Bergschrund,' an obscure German word for a particular type of crevasse, or ice cliff, usually found on mountains at very high elevations.”
